Product Story

Kai Kristiansen is in his 80s and still travels to Japan to ensure the iconic #42 chair is still produced to the same standards as it was in Denmark more than 40 years ago.

Due to precise engineering and great design this chair gives the benefit of an arm whilst maintaining a sense of lightness. While used predominantly as a dining chair, it is also a comfortable and beautiful desk chair.

These chairs can also be upholstered in your choice of fabric or leather. In fabric .75 metres is required and in leather 1.2 square meters.

Shown here in Oak, the Kai is also available in Walnut.
