A new friend in wood. Rounded lines that are friendly and welcoming, Hippo, is a wooden chair that takes the distinctive lines of a traditional Swedish stick-back chair and adds a generous helping of lighthearted modernity. Hippo balances between the graceful poise of a ballerina and the strength and stability of a hippopotamus. It was first shown at the Danish Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition, “White-Out” in Copenhagen on 29 October 2010. The table Potamus, is presented for the first time at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2011. The table is the perfect partner for Hippo chair and can be used in, for example, cafés or restaurant settings.
