The round provocateur

getama_ringchair
Provocative and oversized – or comfortable and transportable. Opinions were divided back in 1958, when the designer couple Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel created the Ring Chair easy chair.

Their aim was to draw a chair that would meet the demands of comfort and easy packaging. The couple designed a chair with a square seat and a circular back, which encloses the body and provides the necessary support, but also allows for change of sitting positions. The seat and the back are held together by four wooden rods that make up the legs. The design is so clever thought that the elements easily can be separated and transported without taking up much space.

In its expression, the Ring Chair is an example of a piece of furniture if organic, sculptural and open design is synonymous with the optimism and more informal way of life of the 1950s.

The Ring Chair has so far been produced in untreated, varnished or stained oak, but now, furniture factory Getama also launches it in a version of massive, oiled walnut. Ring Chair is available upholstered in fabric or leather.
