Shoemaker Chair™ no. 49, Oak

598 

A true classic made in Denmark since 1936 – where it still to this day is produced by our local joinery.

The seat is shaped out of one large solid piece of wood and because of the variations in the woodgrain, every Shoemaker Chair™ is completely unique. Together, the turned legs and the stabilizing T connection create a harmonic and aesthetic piece of furniture with strong references to the Nordic design universe.

The construction may look rather simple, but it is technically difficult to master. The solid piece of wood has to be carved very accurately to ensure the highest comfort.

At the end of the process every model is finished by hand before going into a three-step process of staining or oiling surface treatments.

Care

Step 1: Clean the surface with a mild soapy water solution. Wipe the surface dry.

Step 2: Apply a neutral furniture oil with a soft cloth. Excess oil must be removed 30 minutes after application.

Step 3: Polish with a clean cloth until an even look is attained. The oil will not harden until after 12 hours. Do not cover any of the surface until the oil has hardened.

IMPORTANT: Cloths with oil should be disposed of in an airtight bag with a little water as they can be highly flammable.
