Dandy Armchair — Coal Boucle

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

The refined and comfortable Dandy Armchair gives a soft expression with its 1930s club chair design and appealing curves. Dandy Armchairs rounded design makes it easy to place freely in any room.

When Massproductions Designer-in-Chief, Chris Martin designed the Dandy Sofa in 2015, he asked himself “How do we want to sit?” and “How do we want to move in a room?”. The answer to the questions was the Dandy collection.

“With Dandy we wanted to encourage playfulness in how we furnish rooms, homes and public spaces. Magnus found a sofa from the 30s at an auction that had a nice rounded shape. We see rectangular sofas everywhere, so we were inspired by this almost forgotten form” says Chris Martin.

The name Dandy refers to the concept that emerged in the 18th century, where a dandy is a middle-class man who, with a certain extravagance in his clothes and appearance, wants to convey a sense of fine taste and elegance. The Dandy Collection expresses certain values associated with the dandy – elegance, panache, beauty and a relaxed attitude.
