Designer Kristina Kjær designed ‘Strik’, a snuggly armchair, that consists of a frame made of ash tree and a knitted upholstery made of wool – a wooden ‘body’ wearing a knitted ‘sweater’. The upholstery is reversible and can also be used as a blanket. Based on its materials and idiom Strik is rooted in the North and inspired by how we wrap ourselves in warm clothes to protect us from the cold.

Kristina says: “I have worked with the meeting between the traditional and familiar in contrast to the modern and surprising. The result is a chair that invites to closeness, and I welcome you to experience it.”
