The Chisel Lounge Chair by Andreas Bergsaker is a modern adaptation of a traditional piece of furniture. As a nod to the chisel, a tool used by carpenters for centuries, the chair reflects precision craftsmanship and a reduced design.
The armchair was designed by Norwegian designer Andreas Bergsaker (b. 1990), who completed his product design studies at Oslo University of Applied Sciences and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences in 2015. His focus is on everyday objects that are designed for both their longevity and their relevance for future generations.
His designs are based on intensive studies of material and form and pay tribute to cultural heritage by combining traditional craftsmanship, industrial manufacturing processes and tactile qualities.
The Chisel lounge chair is made of solid wood and is available in different types of wood and colors. An upholstered version is also available. The design language of the armchair is minimalist and is characterized by clean lines.
The backrest and the seat of the chair are organically shaped, with the backrest being slightly tilted backwards. The angled legs with their beveled edges are a direct homage to the carpenter’s tool after which they are named. They ensure the chair’s stability and give it a distinctive silhouette.
Andreas Bergsaker’s work reflects his deep understanding of materiality and precise craftsmanship. With its compact and minimalist design, the Chisel lounge chair is an enhancement to any interior that values timeless aesthetics.
