Era Dining Chair

By Eikund


Era is an innovative chair with a modern material mix. It was showcased at the Association of Applied Arts´ autumn exhibition in the mid 1950´s. Sven Ivar Dysthe’s prototype in steel, wood, and leather was honored in the Norwegian magazine Bonytt as the exhibition´s most interesting product. Dysthe graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1954. He designed Era with organic wood and industrial steel, resulting in a versatile chair suited to a range of styles and settings. The black powder-coated steel frame, a steam-bent T-shaped wooden backrest, and a light and almost floating veneer seat provide an elegant design and comfortable form. With its stackable ability, it has a perfect combination of aesthetics and pure function. It is now in production for the first time! Designed in 1956.
