Chair with armrest from the Yuan Dynasty
Norr11's Shanghai Chair, designed by Rune Krøjgaard and Knut Bendik Humlevik, is a modern interpretation of the Chinese horseshoe chair. The design dates back more than 700 years, as the inspiration for the armrest was found in a chair from the Yuan Dynasty, a time when Marco Polo was still in China.
Made of ash bow wood with hand-woven paper yarn
The Shanghai Chair consists of a solid ash wood frame bent with steam and a seat made of hand-woven paper yarn or leather. The back and armrest play a central role in the construction of the chair and give it its iconic shape. The high back provides comfortable support and the armrest comfortably surrounds the body.
Available in different versions, the chair fits well into any ambience and can be combined wonderfully with other chairs.
