Danish company, Vermund, has revived the manufacturer, Vermund Larsen’s original and ground-breaking chair designs of the 1950’s and ‘60’s.  Vermund Larsen started manufacturing steel products in 1935 and, with renowned architect Ib Kofod-Larsen, constructed the first chair in Europe made from steel rods and fibreglass.  The chair received a lot of attention and publicity due to its effective way of distributing weight in the back and its slightly bowed seat which, when combined, provided tremendous support to the lower back area and wrapped itself around the body.

The chair was a huge success in Denmark and abroad due to the revolutionary shaping technique that resulted from the special material used.

In 1962 the company was responsible for the world’s first office chair with automatic height adjustment using the gas cartridge system, and the ergonomically shaped seat and back.

Vermund has now revived a selection of the original chairs, their designs tweaked slightly for today’s market.  The chairs are all designed and manufactured in Denmark, upholding the company’s tradition for handcraft and beautiful furniture. 

Century Design is excited to be a supplier in the U.K for the VL118 dining chair and the VL135 lounge chair.  Both were designed with comfort and practicality in mind (the VL118 can hang on the table for ease of cleaning underneath) and are constructed with high quality materials.
