A Danish-inspired and Scandinavian tone characterizes Fredrik A. Kayser's original designs. Among them is the armchair Model 711 Chair. The chair is a timeless piece despite references to the mid-century design era. The 711 armchair is just as relevant today as the day it was born. Its Nordic aesthetic makes it easily adaptable to modern design. This chair is a Norwegian design icon that will last for years.

Even though we continue our adventure and strive to tell new stories, we are proud to say that our furniture is still made at our factory in Sykkylven, Norway. This is a chapter we don’t want to rewrite. We are convinced that it is only in this way that we can create and design pieces that will last for generations to come – in form, quality and comfort.
Fredrik A. Kayser
Fredrik A. Kayser (1924-1968) graduated from the Norwegian National College of Art & Design in 1945. Along with Afdal, Brattrud, Rastad & Relling, he became one of Norway's most respected designers during the era of Scandinavian Design. Between 1945 and 1956, Kayser worked at Rastad & Relling design studio. In 1956, Kayser established his first design studio.
During his career, Fredrik A. Kayser designed furniture for several of Norway's most famous furniture manufacturers. Light, modern and functional are all characteristics of his furniture. Kayser's designs emit a strong Scandinavian tone, while their handcraft displays high-quality Danish furniture design.
Many of his furniture pieces are considered classics today, among them the armchair Modell 711, which in 1960 won first prize in the Industry Council for Furniture and Furnishing Industry Chair competition.

We like to call them our main chapters - and these chapters are carried on and told for generations. High quality and comfort were vital to the first generation and are still essential to our heritage. True craftsmanship runs in our blood.Read More
