AV Chaise Longue Chair

Classic Chaise Longue

AV Chaise Longue Chair – a remake of a classic designed by Arne Vodder one of the most influential Danish architects and furniture designers in the 20th century. It was the first furniture piece he designed with a full metal under structure. He carried out extensive research before deciding to use Matt steel for AV chaise longue frame. The AV Chaise Longue chair was presented for the first time during the annual furniture fair in Copenhagen in 1972. Now Erik Joergensen is relaunching the chair in close cooperation with Arne Vodder’s family.

“My dad was really proud of the chair, and for many years it had a prominent spot in our living room,” says Michael Vodder, Arne Vodder’s son, and he continues: “When I was a child I dreamt of one day having this chair in my own home – that is now possible.”

The chair used a material that was brand new at the time, a synthetic material called Ironside. What made that specific material so unique was its durability; it was very hard wearing. Furthermore, the chair was covered in a very soft and luxurious leather, which is the version that Erik Jørgensen is reviving.

Just like Arne Vodder’s other designs, the AV Chair - EJ 230 chaise longue was designed with a passion for detail. The moulded frame in matt metal enhances the beautiful shape of the chair, which follows the shape of your body naturally. A good design for Arne Vodder had to be both useable as well as aesthetically beautiful. A chair should be comfortable to sit in.

“When it comes to the form, it is important to me that the design is beautiful to look at – with curves and organic shapes. The quality should be considered thoroughly and the product should not look mass produced but you should be able to see the craftsmanship behind it. The design should be organic, aesthetic and beautifully executed,” explained Arne Vodder in an interview in 2009.
