Ada

The Ada chair is the second collaboration with LK Hjelle. This family-owned manufacturer has been producing furniture in Sykkylven since Lars Karl Hjelle founded the original factory in 1940. Today the brand is run by his grandson Dag Hjelle. The factory is located in the picturesque Norwegian fjord village of Sykkylven.

Ada is continuing on my wish to create furniture objects that speak softly. Like the Fri sofa, Ada is void of unnecessary distractions or concepts. It does not try to capture the latest trend. The focus is rather on creating a comfortable and delicate chair. To be used for dinner parties stretching into the wee hours or a long day at the home office.

When designing chairs, they mustn't become too large. Even though I wanted the Ada chair to feel voluptuous and welcoming, it is still quite petite.

As a designer, one of the greatest joys is to work with talented craftsmen and women. The chair, like all Hjelle products, is produced locally. The steel and wood come from neighbouring factories. The textile even is woven at Innvik.
