Erik Magnussen (1940-2014) graduated as a ceramicist in 1960 and started working for highly esteemed Bing & Grøndahl as an industrial designer. Since the late ´70s, Magnussen has been synonymous with the Stelton thermos.
A key theme of Erik Magnussen’s work is simplicity – nothing is superfluous. Erik had a pragmatic view of design. First and foremost, the design should be functional and durable.
The Chairik chair is an archetypical example of simplicity: with a two-dimensional, easily manufactured shell, Erik Magnussen achieved a high level of comfort and design.
Erik Magnussen's designs are exhibited in museums across the world, and he has received many acknowledgements and awards for his work.
