COVER chair, designed by Thomas Bentzen, is a modern reinterpretation of the classic wooden armchair.
In a clever design choice, thin form pressed plywood covers are given the dual role of working as comfortable armrests, while at the same time ensuring that the chair holds together. COVERs contemporary design gives it a strong personality and with a frame produced from solid beech wood it is extremely robust and hardwearing. The chair is also very versatile, at home at the dining table, as a desk chair, in a restaurant, hotel room, or any other public setting.
THOMAS BENTZEN, former designer at Louise Campell Studio, started his own studio in 2010. He is the co-founder of the design collective REMOVE and his products have received international recognition at fairs and exhibitions all over the world.
THOMAS BENTZEN'S DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“I like to create objects that are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use - and simply create joy while not. For me durability means quality, form and functionality. And putting an immense amount of energy into making virtues out of necessities.”
THOMAS BENTZEN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“To me Scandinavian design has always been about honesty and functionality composed with poetry. I like it that way. And I think Scandinavian designers have succeeded in bringing their heritage into a time where we no longer stand next to the cabinetmaker, but are challenged and thrilled by new materials and new ways to produce.”
