The Elephant Chair, designed by Kristian Sofus Hansen and Tommy Hyldahl, is a modern interpretation of Scandinavian minimalism combined with Japanese aesthetics. The design is inspired by Danish upholstered chairs of the 1950’s, while drawing visible characteristics from the already iconic Mammoth Chair. The result is a light and elegant lounge chair where the Elephant ear shaped back gently curves around the body providing superior comfort.
The Elephant chair is hand-crafted with a solid oak wood frame. The chair comes in four frame variations; Natural, Dark Stained, Black and Smoked, and can be upholstered with leather, wool and sheepskin.
The seat and back are made from the highest quality compression molded oak veneer shells. The two shells are pressed in the same press mold, and surround the body in a light soft curve. The legs are designed as one single profile without any visible joints. This enriches the experience of the material strength and exchange between the light and heavy dimensions; “elegant and simple but sturdy without being clumsy”.
