The distinctive Mandariini chair merges a soft, futuristic form with a timeless appeal. Designed in 1960, the chair’s funnel-like swivel seat meets a wood-coated steel leg. The aesthetically pleasing, extremely comfortable and durable chair is the perfect choice for both private homes and public spaces.

The shape of a funnel served as the starting point for the Mandariini chair, while the seat is reminiscent of Japanese origami. Hiort af Ornäs once said that during the design phase he would sit at his kitchen table night after night cutting and folding paper in an effort to design a cone-shaped chair. “I played with the idea of a cone and the different ways it could be cut for a couple of years. I kept thinking about it because a plywood press can easily cut out a cone.” Mandariini is testament to the manufacturing process being an endless source of inspiration for the designer.

The appearance of the revolving design classic depends on the chosen wood, finish and upholstery. The steel in the leg structure is available in chrome or black and the wood in mahogany, walnut, oak or birch.
