Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

In the early 1980s, our founder Ingvar Kamprad asked the Danish industrial designer Niels Gammelgaard to create the world's most inexpensive armchair that could be manufactured industrially, without filling or fabric. Niels had already designed another chair in metal with holes, so Ingvar suggested making the holes bigger to remove a third of the material. It worked. JÄRPEN armchair was born – a timeless classic given the name SKÅLBODA in the Nytillverkad collection.
