Aurora


The chair was designed by Jørn Utzon in 1965 in connection with the work on the Operahouse in Sydney...''In relation to form and materials this is the most optimized and worked through of my models. I am therefore very happy that the chair is coming into production, now almost 40 years after the first prototype was made.In connection with the work on the Operahouse we were using very large constructions of formpreassured wood – I was very fascinated by this and it was therefore important to me to use this technique in connection with the furniture design I made for the building.''
