Whilst studying hunting chairs of the mid-20th century, designers Kristian Sofus Hansen & Tommy Hyldahl have created a modern interpretation of the low-slung hunting chair type, with construction inspired by Japanese simplicity combined with the Danish stick chairs of the 1950’s.

Samurai is a highly considered piece of chair making based on stick chair construction popular in the 1950’s, which marry different turned oak sections that support the seating comfort and tectonic geometry. The chair is completed beautifully with a highly crafted round oak section meeting the back in an elegant form which completes the iconic Samurai silhouette. 

Samurai is offered with saddle leather from Sorensen Leathers, which folds around the chair like armour and carries the body with ease. The seat is mounted with brass rivets in order to achieve maximum strength, whilst the back is mounted with adjustable leather straps and brass buckles. The leather is handmade in Denmark in proud Danish furniture tradition.

Kristian creates unique pieces through simple, functional and considered design. His designs aim to merge traditional design methods and new production techniques into high quality pieces of furniture and product design.

Tommy Hyldahl
Tommy has been responsible for the creative DNA of NORR11 since 2010, and has worked with a number of furniture designers.
His interest in materials and product manufacturing is clearly seen throughout the whole collection.

Since 2015 the two designers began a design collaboration. From Tommys many travels around Asia and Kristians studies in Japan, they strive to combine their passion for Japanese simplicity, ethnic details and Scandinavian tradition in timeless pieces of furniture.


At NORR11 we strive to rethink Scandinavian design in order to create timeless furniture pieces. We seek inspiration from nature and raw materials, which is evident in our products that often redefine materials, techniques and forms. Fusing together cultures from around the world with simple Scandinavian design principles, we generate a unique perspective on furniture design. Our name stands for our Nordic heritage and the day it all began, the 11th of November 2011. Welcome to NORR11.
