Description

First launched in 1958, architect Jørgen Rasmussen's revolutionary swivel chair sparked this 50th Anniversary Edition with its seat and backrest fully upholstered in welted full-grain leather. Though his Kevi gets a luxurious upgrade, it's still a masterpiece of function and hews to Jørgen's original credo that comfortable, supportive seating enhances the ability to get work done. Available in 4 different heights, each equipped with the characteristic aluminum base complete with automatic height adjustment and the double-wheel castor introduced by Jørgen in 1965—that is still seen today on everything from office chairs to rolling suitcases.

Brand

Engelbrechts

Founder Morten Engelbrecht found his bliss while working for a Copenhagen furniture store at age 17. He didn’t know it at first; he even tried twice to get into architecture school. “I realized that it was never going to happen,” he says, and in 1989 he started his own furniture company while still in his twenties. First as an importer of other European brands, Engelbrechts then developed into an international manufacturer, partnering with the likes of renowned Danish designers Erik Magnussen, Jørgen Rasmussen and Anders Hermansen.

“Simplicity, functionality, high comfort, the design must be useful,” Morten says as he ticks off the company’s priorities. “We don’t make small details just to make it look nice, that’s not how we work.” Creating timeless furniture is also how his company looks to the future. “Good design is sustainable, both in terms of the environment but also sustainable in terms of long-lasting products that you want to keep for a lifetime.”
