the ‘cover chair’ by designer thomas bentzen for danish company muuto reinterprets the classic wooden armchair; a rounded form-pressed veneer shell and four strong wooden legs give the chair a solid and grounded expression. unexpectedly lightweight, the furniture piece comes in three variations: upholstered in kvadrat textiles, leather, or in solid wood. ‘cover is born from a desire to create a comfortable and contemporary armchair in wood. the chair has its name from the thin molded plywood covers, which work as comfortable armrests and as structured element holding the chair together,’ says designer thomas bentzen. the contemporary seating iteration works well around a dining table, as a desk chair, in a restaurant, or in a hotel room. ‘I aimed for a crisp and vivid expression in the plywood while looking for a solid and grounded look in the frame and base of the chair, which creates an interesting contrast. three years of play and hard work in the making has resulted in a strong, yet light armchair playing and taking the molded veneer to its extreme,’ adds bentzen.
