Dandy Armchair by Pierre Sindre
Pierre designed this chair in 2017 for Gärsnäs.
Ferdinand offers comfortable extended sitting. The chair is based on the same theme as the Nomad chairs but, with its use of leather, is more exclusive. The construction is timeless. Chairs of this type were being made some 4 000 years ago. The turned wedges are the secret of the chair, like two wooden knots.
Ferdinand is manufactured by Gärsnäs in two models: one using light red beech while the oak variant is heavier and sturdier. The seat is made of natural or dark brown leather from Tärnsjö tannery in Upland.
Purchasers assemble the chairs themselves without having to use glue, screws or hammer. Ferdinand was awarded the 2013 ELLE Interior Chair Prize. In 2015 the chair won the year’s Lauritz Icon from the magazine Residence.
Ferdinand chairs are supplied in a flat pack direct from Gärsnäs.
Called Österlen, the chair has slices cut out of the bent back and round legs to make a comfortable backrest, create neat joints with the square plywood seat and sharpen the line of the legs.

Åke Axelsson has presented this chair Wood for Garnas at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010. He seems inspired by Thonet in several of his designs.
Wood is made from beech from sustainable managed forests. The components are made with a traditional steaming technique that uses a minimal amount of wood. Wood is packed disassembled in a recyclable cardboard in order to reduce transport volume and thereby carbon dioxide emissions. Wood is lightweight and comfortable and meets the highest requirements for both product durability and environmental sustainability. Wood is available in untreated or waxed beech, or with a eco labeled stain in black, white, dark brown or red. The back can be upholstered in a choice of vegetable tanned leather, sheepskin or cotton canvas.”
