The Merkur chair from the Danish Menu, designed by the visionary designers Skogstad and Waernes, gives your interior a certain luxury and timelessness.
The Merkur chair is beautifully upholstered and comfortable with a foam-filled seat and luxurious fabric upholstery with a surprising softness, taking the understated shape of the dining chair to new heights.
Originally intended for the palatial interior of the Oslo Stock Exchange, the design by designers Skogstad and Waernes honors the Roman god of trade and commerce.
By using traditional joinery techniques, an elegant classic shape has been created, and the now iconic chair is suitable for a large number of different interiors.
