This week, we’re highlighting a selection of designs from their timeless collection, including enduring favorites and exciting new pieces, to re-introduce you to our incredible design partners at Gärsnäs.
DAG
Teresa Lundmark and Gustav Winsth
In every possible way, the Dag daybed is a contemporary design lover’s dream come true. Fantastically chic and innovative in both appearance and construction, Dag presents a forward-thinking concept for a daybed. Featuring plush, pillowy cushions and a comfortable low profile, the design is ideal for elevating and transforming a space. “It’s made for rest beyond the bedroom, a place of comfort in both private and social contexts,” explains Teresa Lundmark who, together with Gustav Winsth and Gärsnäs, designed the daybed. The project is a collaboration between Gärsnäs and Beckmans College of Design, where both students received a brief to design a daybed, a testament to the imaginative capabilities of young designers.
VIVA
David Regestam
Gärsnäs is known for producing forward-thinking designs that test new concepts and bring exciting, unfamiliar ideas to the forefront—which explains why Viva feels right at home in their collection. Viva is chic and eye-catching without compromising comfort, creating a unique experience of sitting in an easy chair while dining, even with its slender proportions. Additionally, Viva is made exclusively of environmentally sustainable materials with a stand of wood and a seat of recycled blanket material, establishing a design that is not just elegant, but eco-conscious as well.
FERDINAND
Åke Axelsson
The Ferdinand chair reinvigorates a classic design to create a modern icon that is inspired by elements found in the furniture of ancient Greece. Named after the protagonist in the famous children’s storybook, Ferdinand the Bull, this wooden armchair is built to be sat in for long periods of time, instilling tranquility and relaxation. Ferdinand is held together by its own wood and leather due to a self-stabilizing design that shapes itself to the surface on which it rests, standing steady wherever the chair is placed. The cushion is filled with vulcanized horsehair, and the leather is reversed to keep the cushion in place. Leather available in tan, black, cognac, or dark brown. Cushion in tanned, black, or dark brown leather.
DINO
Pierre Sindre
As our relationship with the workplace transforms, so do our expectations for office chairs—and Dino is here to deliver. Named after the Italian Ferrari Dino sports car, the chair embodies all the finesse, precision, materials, and fashion of exquisite European designs. Offering spectacular comfort and an elegant silhouette, Dino’s luxurious upholstery, enveloping shape, and sleek, lacquered steel base makes this task chair a magnificent addition to formal workspaces as well as home offices. 5-legged swivel base in chrome lacquered steel, white lacquered steel, or black lacquered steel.
HEDWIG
David Ericsson
Launched at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2016, Hedwig was created with the goal of making a seat that was comfortable to sit in for extended periods of time, and able to accommodate a steaming cup of tea. Stretched leather or canvas is paired with a beech frame, all crafted with masterful precision and unmatched attention to detail, which Ericsson developed as a historical reference to Swedish furniture designer Axel Einar Hjorth. The design’s unique, innovative silhouette is beautifully eye-catching and looks elegant in virtually any space. The chair is topped off with sculptural, rounded armrests just right for a cup of tea.
