Torben Skov rocking chair Nordik Andels Eksport Denmark 1989

About the Item

Highly rare rocking chair designed by Torben Skov and manufactured by Nordik Andels Eksport, Denmark 1989. It's made from a bent beech plywood structure with a sleek white-painted and angled plywood seat and back. The seat is supported by a unique triangle-shaped structure, while the arms that go around the back support the backrest. It has a really cool and minimal appearance. Over time, it has slightly bent, but you won't even notice when you're using it. The chair is marked with the Nordik Andels Eksport sticker on the underside. What's even more impressive is that this chair received the silver prize at the 1990 Asahikwa International Furniture Competition. The design of this rocking chair dates back to Thonet in Austria, originating 130 years ago. Since then, many designers have put their own spin on it, and this particular one stands out with its excellent construction and simple, contemporary design. Literature; Danish Chairs Noritsugu Oda, page 217. Torben Skov is educated at The Graphic School of Art. After graduating in 1970, he has had an extremely productive career. Torben has created more than 1000 book covers and countless drawings. The need to make something completely different from the graphic art, made Torben Skive look into the furniture design in the 1980s. His father was a furniture engineer and the inspiration for furniture was obvious. In total, Skov had designed 35 chairs, tables and sofas.
