This generously proportioned chair is sturdy yet comfortable and rests on a stable base while demonstrating a clean swivel action. Preben Fabricius founded a studio in 1962 with Jørgen Kastholm (1931-2007). For eight years, the duo demonstrated a flair for contemporary design in creating seating made of steel and leather. This was an unusual departure for Danish design, which at the time was dominated by furniture made purely of wood. Within a very short time, Fabricius and Kastholm had risen to the level of major designers such as Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm.
