Kevi Chair 2070: Fully Upholstered

$939 - $2,349



Description

The look of a fully upholstered seat, as well as the option to do the backrest to match, definitely kicks this version of Jørgen Rasmussen's already iconic chair up a notch. Model 2070 is an alternative version of the Danish designer's original Kevi office seating, in constant use since its introduction in 1958. This variation has 4 wooden legs, available in oak or walnut veneer or finished in black or white compression-molded lacquer. The chair still maintains Jørgen Rasmussen's seat and backrest design, based on his belief that comfortable, supportive seating will always enhance the ability to get work done as true today as when Kevi was first conceived more than a half-century ago.

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.”
