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.

Light, modern and functional are all characteristics of Fredrik A. Kayser’s furniture. His designs are strong representatives of the cherished Scandinavian tone, and the handcraft is clearly inspired by the well-known Danish furniture design. All these features are carried out in MODELL 711. Kayser designed MODELL 711 in 1960, and the same year the armchair won first prize in the Industry Council for Furniture and Furnishing Industry chair competition.

We aim to create beautiful, timeless Scandinavian pieces. Being a Norwegian family business producing furniture for an international market requires courage. Maybe even minor heroism. Our close cooperation with young Norwegian and international designers has made Hjelle known for innovative furniture design. And on this subject, we constantly write new chapters.
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.
