  • Description

    In 2011 the design duo Salto & Sigsgaard won a design competition under the auspices of the Danish Ministry of Culture, to design the furniture for one of the permanent chambers at the United Nations headquarters in New York, The Trusteeship Council Chamber also called the Finn Juhl Chamber.

    In connection with this One Collection has developed produced and delivered a completely new unique and beautiful chair named "Council Chair" designed by Kasper Salto and Thomas Sigsgaard.

    The chairs pass on the baton from Finn Juhl's iconic design heritage in a sculptural and pleasant direction, which merges shape, colour and natural materials. The chairs are a construction of moulded 3D veneer in oak or walnut, upholstered with leather or fabric. The swivel base is cast in aluminium.

    "Council Chair" is a new Danish design masterpiece – on the international design stage.

    Kasper Salto

    Kasper Salto (1967) - the designer of the Ice™ Series, Little Friend™ and NAP™ - was trained as a cabinetmaker with Jørgen Wolff. He graduated in 1994 as a designer from the Danish Design School. During his studies Salto spent a term at the Art Center in Switzerland. From 1996-1997 Salto Lectured at the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen and was also appointed a member of S.E. (The Cabinetmakers' Autumn Exhibition). In 1997 Kasper Salto became an exhibiting architect for S.E. at the Museum of Applied Art in Copenhagen.
    In Kasper Salto's work the Danish tradition of furniture design is continued in a well-balanced combination with international industrial design. Salto's main source of inspiration is nature's superior way of designing and colouring. In spite of his young age, Kasper Salto has already received several design awards for his works such as the Danish Knud V. Engelhardt's memorial award, The Danish Arts Foundation in the category of Crafts & Design & the Finn Juhl Prize.
    For Fritz Hansen, Kasper Salto has designed the Ice™ Series including tables, side chairs, two different bar chairs, Little Friend™ - a small multifunctional table and NAP™ - a series of light stacking chairs.
    If people who sit in the chair notice they have been sitting comfortably, I think I've succeeded. Say's Salto
