A Fredrik Kayser Scandinavian Moderne Lounge Chair, Norway 1960s

About the Item

An amazing Mid- Century Modern swivel chair designed by Fredrik Kayser and produced at Vatne Lenestolfabrikk. Model 860. Fredrik A. Kayser is a well-known furniture designer from the Scandinavian Design period of the mid-twentieth century. He was born in the Norwegian town of Bergen, finding a lot of inspiration in music. His father Trygve Kayser had a furniture agency and a large network in the industry. Fredrik began his carpentry apprenticeship right after his middle school exam. At the age of 15, he had already drawn his first dining room, which was put into production at Viken Møbelfabrikk. Kayser got his diploma at the Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry in Oslo in 1945, the same year he started his career at Rastad & Relling Tegnekontor. His furniture is characterized by elegant design and material sensitivity, with a rare sense of proportions and composition. Kayser was inspired by the trends of the time, but always managed to give his creations a unique personal touch, with an elegance that made them instant classics. Modell 860 which he designed for Vatne Lenestolfabrikk in 1960, is characterized by beautiful threedimensional curves and an almost "Spaceage" feel.

    By Peter Opsvik
    Located in Bergen, NO
    Cylindra chairs and stool in pine designed by Peter Opsvik. Although barrel manufacturing enjoys a long tradition in Norway, barrels for storing herrings have been made obsolete by plastic containers and freezers. In 1984, a small company that manufactures barrels asked Peter Opsvik to look at the possibility of developing furniture using their know-how as barrel manufacturers. Opsvik chose to abandon the barrel form, and proposed gluing staves into straight cylinders of various dimensions, and these wooden cylinders made it possible for him to express form more freely than he had been able to with earlier...
