Jørgen Rasmussen expands the proportions in this fully upholstered update of his much-admired 1958 swivel chair. Giving Kevi a wider seat and backrest, with durable foam-molded seat and thick back padding, suits the diversity of today's workplace. Finessed with upholstery in a selection of fine fabrics or leather. Available in 4 different height options, all with the characteristic satin-finish aluminum base with automatic height adjustment and the now-ubiquitous double-wheel castor devised by Jørgen for the original Kevi.

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.”
