Description from Finnish Design Shop
The Arctander chair by Paustian is an iconic piece of Nordic design from the 1940s. Named after its designer, Philip Arctander, the chair has over the years been known familiarly as the name ‘Muslingestolen’, mussel chair – a reference to the chair’s shell-like appearance. The mussel chair was produced in limited numbers until 2016 when Paustian re-launched the design classic in collaboration with Philip Arctander’s granddaughter Sofie.
The new Arctander chair remains faithful to Muslingestolen’s original design language. The soft seat rests casually on rounded oak legs while the chair’s back legs reach backwards, giving the chair a pleasant, even slightly playful look. The armrests crown the chair’s relaxed appearance. Upholstered in luxurious sheepskin, the chair makes a beautiful resting place in the living room or corner of the bedroom but will also delight in public spaces. The Arctander armchairs are numbered, and the number can be found on the label under the seat of the chair.
