With this version in black integral foam, Jørgen Rasmussen's iconic 1958 swivel chair continues to foster prime innovation. The architect's notion that comfortable, supportive seating enhances the ability to get work done gets a sleek contemporary refresh with the durable foam-molded seat and thick backrest. Available in 4 different height options, all with the characteristic aluminum base equipped with automatic height adjustment and the now-ubiquitous double-wheel castor first devised by Jørgen for the Kevi in 1965.

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.”
