“Personally I think it (Round chair) is my best achievement. Not because of its export success, but because I have been more thorough with it than anything else.”
In 1960, ten years after its debut, the Round chair was shipped to America to be a part of history forever. It was chosen for its comfort and quality to be used in the first-ever televised U.S. presidential debate between candidates Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. Its feature in the debate earned it the name the Presidential chair, but also the nickname “The Chair”.
The American magazine ‘Interiors’ lauded it as “the most beautiful chair in the world” on their cover in 1950.

Suede: Suede should be cleaned with a dry sponge or suede brush to remove dust and dirt. It can be protected against water stains and damage with a silicon spray.
Oak: Wipe the surfaces down with a clean, damp cloth. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent fading to the finish. It’s also important not to position in front of a heat source, as the constant change in heat will dry out your furniture. Waxing also protects the grain.
Wood: Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Clean the surface periodically with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Liquid spills should be immediately dabbed dry and wiped off. Make sure that your wood furniture is not positioned close to heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle. We recommend that wood products should not be exposed to intense sunlight for prolonged periods of time as ultra-violet rays may eventually damage the finish.
Do not use an abrasive material on the wood.
