Anders Engholm won the Danish Furniture Design TV show 'Danmark's next classic' in 2022. Following the show, he joined forces with Montana Furniture to deliver 100 units of his Aveny-T Chair to the historic Aveny-T theatre in Frederiksberg.

A collaboration with a manufacturer was a must to be able to supply 100 chairs to Aveny-T, and the fact that it was Montana is a dream come true. Thanks to Montana, the chair went from my idea to now being available to buy in stores.

The Aveny-T Chair

Aveny-T has a simple and elegant black lacquered metal frame with a seat and back in recycled plastic. The plastic shells are made from a mix of HDPE (high density polyethylene). The shells are manufactured in Denmark and are 100% recyclable and recycled. The plastic is collected from household waste and companies locally in Denmark and is available in one colour: Multicolour.

The chair was designed with a view to the historic Aveny-T theatre in Frederiksberg. A theatre for a young audience naturally requires a chair that is both functional, minimalist, and expressive. The Aveny-T fulfils this brief with its distinctive design, light appearance, and a modern combination of materials – sustainable recycled plastic moulded in a composite look combined with a single black lacquered metal frame.

The chair is stackable and stacks up to 10 chairs on the floor and 20 on a trolley. The top of the backrest is designed in a way that forms an armrest when you are sitting sideways on the chair.
