The Portrait Chair was the winning entry in a design competition sponsored by Statsbygg (the Norwegian Directorate of Public Construction and Property) and co-organised by the National Museum of Norway. The brief called for a welcoming, multifunctional chair for use in the museum’s public spaces. The jury, led by British designer Jasper Morrison, lauded Portrait as “a beautiful chair that adds a seductive softness and elegance to the room where it will be used”.

In addition to the simple accents and natural materials that are common to contemporary Scandinavian design, Portrait’s sinuous lines and universal forms bring forth the freer, more poetic aesthetic of its designer’s native Norway.

The Portrait Chair builds on a familiar typology–a wood seat and backrest held by a welded frame of tubular steel–yet feels fresh, thanks to precise execution and refined details.
