Dögg & Arnved Design Studio
The inspiration for the Fifty armchair is
clearly to be sought in the ''Flag
Halyard Chair'', the recliner chair in
metal and cord designed by Hans
Wegner in Denmark in 1950.
Dögg & Arnved designed a straight
backrest to allow not only for rest but
also reading (or watching television).
The woven 'ears' on each side of the
headrest reinforce the general feeling
of intimacy. The 350 metres of woven
cord used is available in grey, black
or tobacco colour, set on a black
steel structure. The Fifty armchair will
be a sculptural presence in whichever
room it occupies and will intrigue with
its unexpected alliance of the
minimalist design of its steel structure
and the traditional warmth of the
hand-woven cord. Fifty is designed to
be used outdoors as well as indoors.
