Kvitre is an armchair with a powder-coated steel frame and seating in various materials including leather and canvas. The chair’s name, meaning Chirp in Norwegian, is inspired by its thin, bird-like legs. The width and angle of the design are rooted in ergonomics and comfort, and the minimalist design is flexible – the seat can easily be repaired or replaced in response to wear, tear or simply the user’s changing style and taste. The chair is sturdy and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
