A winning chair from a design contest sponsored by Statsbygg



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”.
