About the project

Schackenborg is a castle located in Møgeltønder, Southern Jutland. The castles history dates to the 1800s, making it a historic piece of land. It was where some of the most mentioned Danish finds were made, the golden horns. The assignment for Engelbrecht was to deliver chairs for Slotfelt, which is a barn connected to Schackenborg Castle.

Slotfelt was restored in 2011 by PRAKSIS Architects in the desire to create a space for cultural unfoldment. The barn got a new thatched roof and inside, they developed a flexible exhibition space that, with the help of modern technology, tells the story of Møgeltønder, Schackenborg, Slotfelt and the discovery of the Golden Horns.

The new purpose of the barn required chairs that fitted the many technical requirements of a professional event setting. 

  • Chairik are simple and delicate designed chairs, made to suit the people, the situation, and the location. It is very versatile and available with different bases for different purposes.
  • The Chairik chairs are perfect for stacking and easy to move around, making it ideal for a place like Slotfelt that require frequent replacement of cultural activities.
  • It is made with an arch, supporting the back and there is a natural swing in the chairs seat to fit the body’s natural sitting position, making it a chair that you wish to sit in, and it is ideal for longer lectures. For the project, the choice fell on Chairik XL 121 chairs. This chair both suited the need and aesthetics.
