The Dandy easy chair designed by Pierre Sindre
Pierre Sindre follows his heart and launches Dandy. A sit-friendly, beautiful easy chair
for rest and contemplation. If you like it cosy, there’s room for two.
How is the Dandy easy chair intended for use?
The easy chair is large and spacious with a high enclosing back that really makes a statement. The rattan back
filters the light just right, creating seclusion without feeling closed in.
It is a space for rest and contemplation, both at home or a public environment. A place to withdraw to, for a
pleasant time, to read a book or simply to look out the window. I’ve been looking for an easy chair to disappear in
for ages, so quite simply Dandy evolved from this desire.
What else inspired you?
The Dandy easy chair is a bit like a snobby Englishman: well-dressed in exclusive materials. Personally, I am very
fond of fashion from the 60s. For a long time, the working name of the chair was Steve McQueen, inspired by
his iconic style, topped off with unlined leather racing gloves. There is certainly something stylish about the easy
chair with its elegant and exquisite materials. Just like a dandy. In design terms, it partly harks back to a restfully
comfortable wing chair. The cushions are loose and the headrest is adjustable for individual comfort.
How about the materials?
In the spirit of Gärsnäs, only purely natural materials are used. Rattan, leather from Tärnsjö in cognac or black,
woollen fabrics and a frame of beech or oak. Rattan is durable and strong. After the leather edging has been
applied, the rattan goes in wet. Next the upholstery is put in place and as the rattan dries it also shrinks, tightens
and gives the structure the desired elasticity.
