Shanghai Dining Chair is a modern interpretation of the ancient Chinese horseshoe chair. It can be said that the design goes more than 700 years back as the inspiration for the armrest was found in a chair dating back to the Yuan Dynasty, a period where Marco Polo was still in China.

The back and the armrest play a central role in the chair’s construction, giving it an iconic shape and firm support. The high back provides comfortable support and the armrest effortlessly surrounds the body of the chair.


Rune Krøjgaard + Knut Benedik Humlevik

Rune Krøjgaard
For Rune design is all about being able to 'see new possibilities' and finding 'the simplicity through the shape and dimension' of a body. Thus his objects are meant to 'complement the eye and the body' and create a 'relation between shape and space'.

Knut Bendik Humlevik
Knut has a great interest in the entirety and dynamics of his designs and creations, based on the material's natural ability. For him, design is seeing the balance in a product and trimming away all unnecessary details.
