The designers of the Szene chair

The development of the Szene chair is made in collaboration with architects Lene Tranberg & Signe Baadsgaard.

The Szene  chair is developed for the auditorium in Axel Towers, Copenhagen. The chair is developed with a keen eye for the architecture of both the building and the room to secure a cohesion between the interior and the exterior. The idea was to create a chair, which was classic, but at the same time with an organic expression to suit the shape of the auditorium and the rest of the buildings.

The chair appears modest in size, but is extremely spacious and allows a variety seating positions.

Auditorium chairs for Axel Towers

Axel Towers was designed by Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects in 2017 and consists of five golden towers erected at one of the city’s most central addresses for an international law firm opposite Tivoli in the heart of Copenhagen.

Engelbrechts and the architects worked intensively on a design that allowed the Szene chair to move along the curved steps of the auditorium. The result is a chair that seems modest in size, but which in the meeting with the body is very spacious. With its organic form, it embraces the body, enabling many different sitting positions. 

For the project in Alex Towers, the choice fell on a fully upholstered version in leather, which complements the entire project’s uncompromisingness in materials, elegance and use.
