The 'Reader' Armchair

The Reader armchair has been designed as a place for relaxation. The armchair’s special curved shell is inspired by traditional Danish crafting techniques and helps to reduce surrounding noise, offering a place of shelter and reflection. With its light form and bold organic curves, The Reader is a standout design piece in any setting and just right for enjoying a good book or engaging conversation.

Functional and sturdy, the angle between the Reader’s seat and back rest has been designed to ensure maximum comfort. The armchair’s spacious seat has plenty of room for sitting in differ- ent positions, whether curled up with your legs or fully stretched out.
The Reader’s solid oak frame gives the armchair a warm natural character. A carefully selected palette of Scandinavian colours has been chosen for the upholstery to compliment the oak wood. The upholstery itself is easily replaceable with interchangeable cushions letting you decide when you want to change and update the armchair’s look. The shape of the cushions have been designed to slightly expose the armchair’s shell.
The armchair is ideal for the living room or in a hotel foyer, lobby or reception area in places where you want to feel part of the room but also feel that you have your own space.
Tor Hadsund, Designer: “As a young boy I helped out at a work shop in my home town where they were making boats out of curved veneer. Just the feeling of that was totally special and I realised the great skill that was needed to make it happen. One of the things that I was focused on at the beginning was making a comfortable armchair that closes out the noise of those around you a little bit without making you feel isolated. Something that makes room for silence and sitting relaxed in a chair and enjoying yourself.”
