The Siesta Chair was designed by Norwegian designer Ingmar Relling. Since its inception, the Siesta has taken the test of every generation and passed. Its durability, comfort, and simple design make it an easy choice for many different settings.
Although durable, any chair declines with age. Luckily, a few pieces comprise the Siesta Chair -- all of which are replaceable.

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.
Ingmar Relling (1920-2002) was a passionate designer who created a series of functional furniture designs during his long career. He started his career at Rastad & Relling design studio in 1947 before establishing his studio in Sykkylven in 1950. Today, he is considered one of the most significant contributors to the golden era of Scandinavian Design. Simplicity, minimalism, elegance, and uncompromising quality are fundamental concepts in all of Relling’s designs. In 1965, Ingmar Relling designed his most incredible creation: the Siesta chair. It earned him first prize at the Industry Council for Furniture and Furnishing Industry Chair competition the same year. Even the White House was furnished with Ingmar Relling’s Siesta. Today, the Siesta chair is an internationally recognized classic and a Norwegian icon.

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
