The beautiful NORR11 Mammoth Chair in Leather has been designed by the Danish designer Rune Krøjgaard and Norwegian designer Knut Bendik Humlevik and has a clean minimalistic look. The high back, hugging wings and soft padded upholstery provide superior comfort and sense of privacy, whether relaxing at home or lounging in a more commercial environment.
Knut’s pursuit to create stylish yet functional furniture coupled with Rune’s passion for shapes and specific manufacturing techniques manifest themselves in the Mammoth Chair. The seat and back are formed from the same compression mould, giving the chair its distinctive feature. The chair is handcrafted using solid oak wood for its frame and oak veneer for the seat and back, with upholstery in charming soft leather.
Materials: Solid Oak frame, seat and back of laminated Oak veneer in a range of finishes. Upholstered in Dunes leather. Dunes is a really soft leather that uses a special process involving sanding, buffing and applying a special type of leather oil to the surface gives it that almost velvety touch. At the same time, Dunes boasts a matt look that’s raw with a touch of understated elegance. Part of Dunes’ extra appeal are the subtle, natural markings which bring a unique personality to each hide. The leather boasts a patina that will appear over time as a result of the leather’s exposure to daylight, interior lighting and usage. In fact, the more you use Dunes, the more the leather becomes shinier and smoother.
Dimensions: Height: 104cm x Width: 89cm x Depth: 87cm (Seat Height: 35.5cm)
