Hans Brattrud designed the Scandia Junior chair in 1957 as a student project at the National College of Art & Design in Oslo. Brattrud’s aim was to create a three-dimensionally shaped chair using moulded slaths and different two-dimentional forms.
The design was revolutionary both in shape and expression. The chair immediately won worldwide recognition. At the Deutsche Handwerksmesse in 1967 Brattrud received the gold medal from the Bavarian State Government for Scandia Junior. The same year the chair also received «The Award for Design Excellence» from the Norwegian Design Council.

The iconic chair celebrates its 65 years anniversary this year and we celebrate this by launching a limited edition of 250 pieces Scandia junior in FSC certified palisander. The palisander is from approved plantations in Bolivia. The chairs are specially marked.
