Danish brand Engelbrechts' take on functional elegance infuses designer Anders Hermansen’s clean-lined, 360-degree swivel chair. Joint 1201 has a 4-star base with a fixed seating height, crafted in aluminum with either a polished or powder-coated black finish. Apropos anywhere from an executive office to meeting rooms to the home workspace, its ergonomic contours in fine mesh netweave or resilient webbing provide superior back support and extended comfort.

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.”
