Inspired by traditional Danish elementary school chairs, the NY11 Dining Chair has a frame hand-crafted from solid oak and a seat of laminated oak veneer.
The chair came to life when designers Rune Krøjgaard and Knut Bendik Humlevik went on a mission to create a modern take on the Scandinavian dining chair. Just like a school chair it had to be both comfortable and very durable. The result is a simple and honest chair with a timeless expression.
Despite the black finish, the wood still shows a visible grain, which emphasizes the quality of the material and gives the chair a natural look.
