Kevi 2060 Air Chair
Engelbrechts of Copenhagen adds a version of its stackable Kevi 2060 with a molded plastic seat and backrest, with small surface holes for ventilation and a non-slip surface. Architect Jørgen Rasmussen's original contoured seating readily translates to the 4-legged version with steel tubing legs in polished chrome or powder-coated black. Otherwise, it's a double of his classic 1958 swivel chair, replete with the same supportive, comfortable contours.

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.”
