A true classic made in Denmark since 1936 – where it is still to this day produced by our local joinery.
The seat has been rendered 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 history and experimentation of Nordic design.
The construction may look 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.
We have tirelessly optimized the chair since the early stages, adjusting minor aspects year after year – both in the production flow and in the finished product. Among other things, the T legs were added for extra stability and the seat was re-shaped and rounded so that if the chair falls the rounded profile would protect the topline from breaking.
