The re-launch of an iconic 1960s chair.

Founded in 2016, Norwegian furniture brand Eikund has a simple but admirable mission: to bring 1950s and 1960s Nordic modernist designs back to life. The company’s collection includes re-launched classics that introduce a new generation of design lovers to iconic Norwegian furniture. As part of this quest, Eikund has re-introduced mid-century modern designs created by some of Norway’s most renowned designers; from furniture by Fredrik A. Kayser and Torbjørn Afdal to products created by Sven Ivar Dysthe, Sigurd Resell, Arne Tjomsland, and Torbjørn Bekken. Apart from giving new life to celebrated designs, the company also improves them with new technology and sustainable materials. The Hunter chair is one of these revived designs. Originally created by Torbjørn Afdal in 1960, the lounge chair provided a fresh take on the era’s popular “hunting chair” typology.

Both minimalist and intricate, the lounge chair features a hardwood frame and a stretched saddle leather seat. While keeping the design intact, the brand improved its build with sustainable materials. The frame comes in oak or walnut and in a range of finishes. Options range from soaped and white oiled to black lacquered. Likewise, the organically tanned, double layered leather comes in different colors: cognac, black, or natural. This lounge chair also features edge stitching details in a matching color to the leather and solid cast brass buckles that add a golden accent to the warm materials. Beautifully crafted and updated with premium, sustainable materials, the Hunter lounge chair is now more durable than ever before while bringing Torbjørn Afdal’s timeless design to contemporary living spaces.
