About The Collection

There is one designer whose work is more well-known than his name, Ejvind A. Johansson. His ambition was to create modest, well-made, everyday furniture appreciated for its purity in form and function. An approach instantly apparent in the J64 Chair designed in 1957, which references Nordic folk and traditional Windsor furniture.

The signature spoke-back and gentle, sloping armrests make this a timeless classic. At the same time, the curve of the seat and back add ergonomic comfort, as well as a strong graphic expression. The J64 is ideal as a dining chair or as a lightweight easy chair, accompanied by a cushion or blanket.

The J63 Stool echoes a similar bare simplicity, with a focus on the functional and the practical. Clearly evident the J63’s curved seat and simple, supportive frame. It’s the kind of design you would welcome as an occasional seat for guests, a small stool in a kitchen, by a bedside or as a decorative detail in a living room.

Designer

Ejvind A. Johansson built upon Børge Mogensen's ambition to furnish the homes of Danes with functional modernism. In general, Johansson was perceived as unorthodox in his methods and philosophies. Nevertheless, his J64 chair pays homage to principles of Mogensen's methodology.
