Make it your own

Asger Chair is available with or without upholstered seat. Choose leather for a warm and classic look or be brave and choose a coloured fabric. Classic stripes never go out of style, and if they are combined with the right colour palette, you have the balance that makes a piece of furniture relevant – not only today, but also in 20-30 years from now.

Fabric: Kjellerup Væveri (Kjellerup weaving mill).

“THE SEAT, BACK AND ARMRESTS OFFERS A SOFTNESS AND SUPPORT THAT IS USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE.”

The Asger chair is designed by Danish designer Asger Soelberg, who is known for his shapely wooden chairs. Bent Hansen’s owner and creative director, Henrik Hvid Hansen, tells about the collaboration:

“Ever since Bent Hansen was founded in 1948 as a small upholstery workshop in Aalborg, we have been focused on creating great comfort. So, when Asger Soelberg came to us with a presentation of a new dining chair, we asked each other: How can we, together, create a wooden chair with as great a level of comfort as an upholstered chair?”

The task was to shape the chair’s seat, back and armrests in a way that achieved the same softness as that of an upholstered chair. In addition, the spacious chair offers a unique freedom of movement in different sitting positions.

What's in a name?

The Asger chair shares its name with the designer, and that is not a coincidence. According to Asger Soelberg, the chair is a personal comment to today’s design ideal:

“The Nordic design philosophy after the year 2000 has dictated reduction untill everything superfluous is cut away. I strongly disagree with that idea. In my opinion, it removes the charm of the design.”

According to Asger Soelberg, the chair is anything but minimalist:

”The chair has many exciting angles, which means that you can explore the furniture and find new details for many years to come.”
