Distinctive furniture can also add colour to the interior. Josef Frank designed the bentwood P4 chair in the late 1920s, but it was first launched for the spring of 2021.
The chair’s lattice back and turned spindles give it a light and airy look. It is manufactured at Gemla, Sweden’s oldest furniture factory. There are 8-10 people involved in the advanced process of making a chair. It undergoes everything from material development, turning, bending and milling to polishing, assembly and surface treatment.
