The Veryday company has been awarded the gold in the internationally renowned competition, IF Design Awards, for the November Chair it made for Artipelag. The November Chair, with over 4,500 other competitors, received the recognition of IF Gold Award as one of the world’s most coveted design awards.
It was in fall 2011 that Peter Ejvinsson and Emmy Larsson, both industrial designers at Veryday, received the prestigious commission of designing a chair that would function as a dining chair at Artipelag. The requirements were for a chair that was comfortable, beautiful and durable. The biggest challenge for the design team was to design a chair for an environment that at that time did not yet exist, and to do so under very tight deadlines. The chair had to harmonize with a central meeting place for innovative cultural activities and reflect the surroundings of the beautiful and fascinating archipelago environment.
“Björn Jakobson came to us with the charge of designing a beautiful chair that would be suitable in the restaurants at Artipelag. We had little time; the chair had to be ready for Artipelag’s inauguration a half year later, so there was no time to lose”, said Peter Ejvinsson, industrial designer at Veryday.
The chair is available for purchase in Artipelag’s Design Shop.
