Thanks to new research and a new technique, this upholstered chair gives you optimal seating comfort. Change the style anytime by replacing the beige chair cover with one in a different colour or model.
The upholstery of the chair consists of straight polyester fibres with small gaps between them – providing comfy elasticity and better ventilation so you enjoy a pleasant temperature when sitting.
The seat's bowl-shaped bottom is adapted for your sit bones and those of most of the world's population. And with an innovative technique, the seat's padding is shaped to maximise your comfort.
The backrest has a built-in lumbar support and the angle between the seat and the backrest is optimally adapted to make it comfortable for you to sit a little longer at the dining table.
You decide the style of your chair. BERGMUND is available with white, black and oak effect chair legs, and the tailor-made covers are available in many different models, colours and materials.
The light beige, cotton/polyester blend chair cover is soft to the touch, plus it is easy to keep clean and fresh since it is removable and washable.
The chair cover comes in one piece and fixes in place with hook-and-loop fasteners so you can easily pull it off and put it back on again.
The chair legs are made of solid wood, which is a durable natural material.

We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.
By using a renewable material like wood in this product, we avoid using fossil or finite materials.
The cotton in this product is grown with less water, less chemical fertilizers and less chemical pesticides, while increasing profit margins for the farmers. That way, we lower our environmental impact.
By using recycled polyester in this product, we consume less new raw materials and lower our environmental impact while existing materials get new life.
BERGMUND chair was created so that you can sit longer while enjoying nice dinners – without your legs starting to feel stiff or your back aching. To succeed, we dove into new research on the human body, which led to us developing a new technique to get a really comfortable seat.
Sitting may not seem like an active movement, but it actually involves everything from the body's bones and muscles to tendons, cartilage and joints.
"So that you sit comfortably for longer, it’s important that the body enjoys the right support in the right place", explains material developer Anders Bergner.
Our key common trait – sit bones
With BERGMUND, Anders and the team studied new research to develop the shape of the seat and to find the optimal angle between the seat and the backrest. This resulted in several interesting insights about the human body – for example that the sit bones of all humans are actually very similar.
"It’s true, regardless if someone is 1.85 metres tall or much shorter. So the bowl-shaped bottom of the seat was given a geometry that fits 99% of the world's population.”
Innovation paves a way for more comfort
The polyester in the seat’s padding and backrest comprises of small vertical fibres which provide better elasticity compared to fibres which are more entangled. Anders and his team then developed an innovative technique to further increase the seating comfort by shaping the seat’s padding.
“It compares to making a waffle. The polyester fibres are fed into a special tool where the correct shape fixes in place.”
After several years of development, Anders hopes that BERGMUND helps people both enjoy nice seating comfort and even better moments together.
"When everyone around the table is sitting comfortably, they can relax and focus more on each other."
“When designing BERGMUND chairs, we wanted to create seating for the many people, any day of the year. And as life changes, so can the covers - to fit the season, a special occasion or your mood - take your pick from the various colours and lengths. The only thing that doesn’t change is the soft, cushiony comfort and the chamfered legs that allow the cover to fall smoothly over the frame. We hope these chairs allow you and your friends to relax and stay comfy a bit longer.”
