The Charlottenborg Lounge chair is handmade in Indonesia by sustainable material Manau & Tahiti Rattan. The fine bindings in the seat and back are made by skilled wicker workers. This charismatic armchair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1936 and shown for the first time at Charlottenborg’s spring exhibition in 1937. Originally called the Chair A. J 237 it was part of a series of original wicker chairs. The curving shapes became characteristic of Arne Jakobsen’s many famous chair designs, which can be traced in some of his early pieces of furniture. The armchair has a quite unconventional shape, where the elegantly curved back of solid rattan goes in one with the armrests, both of which are beautifully integrated into the bottom of the chair. In addition to the rattan frame, the chair is fitted with a firm padded seat that comes in many different durable fabric variants. The elegant and comfortable chair is a beautiful contribution to any modern sofa. In fact, the Charlottenborg chair was reportedly Arne Jacobsen’s favourite armchair in his famous cottage on the Bay of Sails.
