The Pause dining chair from Woud, with its simple wooden structure and elegant joints, is the embodiment of modern Nordic design. Finnish designer Kasper Nyman has created the Danish brand a beautiful oak chair that features clean lines and a broad, rectangular backrest. Pause is made of solid oak and oak veneer and available in white-pigmented lacquer and colourful painted finishes. Pair the chair with a desk or dining table or place it in the hallway as a place to rest.

In 2019, the original design was enhanced by adding braces to the chair’s legs, resulting in Pause 2.0.
