An Unlikely-Looking Bentwood Folding Chair

Designer and manufacturer unknown, but this chair hails from 1970s Norway, according to reseller Møbelhøker.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

It demonstrates mastery of steam bending and, surprisingly, it’s listed as a folding chair. You can guess where the pivot point is, though the hardware is unseen.

The armrests must have been fiendishly difficult to make. Using a shaper or router to remove the material to create the armrest lip would’ve been straightforward, but the bend angle is crazy, particularly for a piece that thick.

If anyone knows who the designer is, do tell.
