The Cover chair, designed by Thomas Bentzen for Muuto, is a contemporary interpretation of a classic wooden dining chair. The Cover chair comprises a light, rounded veneer shell and strong wooden legs that give it an organic, grounded appearance. Thanks to its clear and timeless design, Cover will find its place by the dining table both at homes and restaurants, or as an individual side chair in any room.
Designer Thomas Bentzen wanted to create a comfortable wooden chair with a strong personality, and it took him three years to develop a perfect version of the chair. He named the collection after the thin, moulded veneer covers which double as a visual detail and structural elements that hold the chairs together. The Cover chair collection consists of chairs for different needs, all available in various finishes and materials.
In 2020 Muuto changed the chairs’ finish to a more environmentally-friendly, water-based lacquer.
