Kevi Chair 2533: Wood
Spanning the decades, Kevi 2533 is the original design circa 1958 by Danish architect Jørgen Rasmussen. His now-iconic swivel chair stemmed from his belief that comfortable, supportive seating enhances the ability to get work done. Jørgen's design is a master stroke of function with its ergonomically curved wood backrest and seat.
Available in oak and walnut veneers or black or white lacquer with optional seat and/or back upholstery in an array of premium textiles or leather. In 4 different seating heights, all with satin-finish aluminum base equipped with automatic adjustment and double-wheel castors, now an industry standard and also first introduced by Jørgen.

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.”
