Design Jens Fager
“A solid wooden stool that will stand the test of time, not just in the halls of the new Swedish National Museum but in many rooms the world over”
Designer, Jens Fager, has received widespread attention, not only in his home country of Sweden, but across Europe. Jens is driven by a commitment to treat every product with integrity and to strive for an end result that feels natural to the human eye.
When Jens was granted the honor of designing a stool for the Swedish National Museum, he help of Edsbyn . With deep roots in the rich forests of the Hälsingland region, Edsbyn has an established track record as the manufacturer of Ilmari Tapiovaara’s, Fanett Windsor chair.
The Arc Stool was born – A solid wooden stool with a characteristically Nordic design. The elegant lines and curves of the seat are borrowed right from the Swedish National Museum’s Nordic architectural style. The masterfully turned legs and foot rest lend the stool its finer details, reflecting Jens Fager’s deep respect for the wood. The Arc Stool will stand the test of time, not just in the halls of the new Swedish National Museum but in many rooms the world over. A new chapter in design history has been written.
Info: A total of 29 stools were crafted in the small woodshop in Småland and delivered to the orangery at the National Museum in time for the reopening . Each individual piece has been numbered with an engraving by Jens Fager himself. Edsbyn also has plans to put the Arc Stool into serial production. The Arc Stool will be available in Ash, Natural Oak and a number of other attractive stains. The Arc Stool will be available in three different heights (46 cm, 65 cm and 80 cm).
