Council Chair.

In 2012, the Danish design duo Salto & Sigsgaard won a design competition for a new chair to the Trusteeship Council Chamber at United Nations headquarters in New York. The result was the elegant Council Chair, produced by the Danish furniture company Onecollection. The renovated meeting hall was reopened in April 2013 under great attention.

At a networking event at the Danish Art Workshops in Copenhagen on 18 March 2014, designers Salto & Sigsgaard and manufacturer Ivan Hansen from Onecollection will tell the whole story about the development project behind the winning chair.
