Pieces of Nordic Happiness

&Tradition | Chairs

&Tradition (AndTradition), previously known as Unique Copenhagen, is a Danish company, synonym of Nordic heritage in contemporary design. By changing its name, the company’s goal is to emphasize its way of combining solid handicraft with modern design, and Nordic tradition with high quality. &Tradition works with both emerging and established designers and is renowned for producing some of Verner Panton’s and Arne Jacobsen’s most celebrated designs.

Craft meets art. Function meets form. Material meets potential. This is the Nordic tradition and heritage. &Tradition aims to bridge these values to contemporary design, reshaping, redefining and reinventing materials, techniques and forms. &Tradition utilizes and combines new materials, uncovers new techniques and breaks boundaries in manufacturing.

The Danish company wants to challenge the limits of function, form and materials. The collection of &Tradition not only covers iconic designs and undiscovered gems from the masters of yesterday, but also features new works from the leading designers of today and from the talents of tomorrow, those talents who may create the classics of the future. &Tradition scouts for design talent beyond borders and handpicks production facilities that will provide the finest quality, wherever they are.

&Tradition markets its collection through an international network, but their roots are still Nordic and tradition is still a part of their identity. &Tradition believes in design that is made to last from sustainable production, and respects nature that provides the raw materials.

This brand has collaborated with: Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton, Hee Welling, Norm Architects, Mia Hamborg, Benjamin Hubert, Anderssen & Voll, Samuel Wilkinson, Sami Kallio, Luca Nichetto, All The Way To Paris , Jørn Utzon, Space Copenhagen, Jaime Hayón, Flemming Lassen, Signe Hytte, Viggo Boesen, Jakob Thau, Kastholm & Fabricius , Sebastian Herkner, John Astbury, Hvidt & Mølgaard, Edward van Vliet

Chair design the Nordic way – pick the perfect chairs for your life and style

Oh, chairs! It's hard to get enough of them if you're a true design enthusiast. Besides its obvious functional use, a well-made designer chair provides you with so many enjoyable little details that we don't know where to start with. It's the combination of function, form and feeling that makes some chairs just truly special. You might sense it already when you see the chair, but when you sit on it, you just know it. No matter if it is a generous armchair, a practical dining chair, a sturdy bench, sleek bar chair or a simple stool, a high-quality designer chair instantly feels like a lifelong companion.

If you're looking for your new favourite chair, you've come to the right place! Our chair collection is filled with true gems of Scandinavian and Finnish furniture design, ranging from treasured mid-century classics by Charles & Ray Eames, Eero Aarnio and Alvar Aalto to awarded chair designs by contemporary Nordic designers, such as Hee Welling, Sami Kallio and Iskos-Berlin. In terms of materials, colours and chair types, there's an abundant selection to choose from. The most common materials of our chairs include wood and metal in a range of finishes, but you can also opt for a rattan chair, plastic chair, webbing chair, or an upholstered chair in fabric, leather or sheepskin. Our chair collection also includes office chairs, rocking chairs, bean bag chairs as well as poufs and ottomans.
