Sustainable modern craftsmanship
Good design is in constant conversation with the past, present and future. Arc Chair references a classic Danish aesthetic while carefully introducing sustainable values and modern craftsmanship. The archetypal unibody section that functions as both back and arm rest is a Danish archetype that dates back more than 200 years and was first inspired by furniture from ancient Greece.

Harmony in steel and wood
Special attention has been given to the balance of materials in Arc Chair’s design. The slender steel tubes lend a light, modern and airy appearance to the chair, whereas the wooden seat and back provide warm, tactile comfort at the contact points. The result is a chair that is easy to move around the home, providing a comfortable, familiar seat wherever you need it.
Make it yours
Arc Chair can be customised with a variety of Kvadrat wool fabrics and aniline leather from Sørensen Leather, so you can make Arc Chair yours. All fabrics are certified with the EU-Ecolabel and our leathers have received the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
Slow craft meets modern tech
Arc Chair bridges classic and modern craftsmanship. Each curve and form has been carefully created by hand in the metal and wood workshops of TAKT and Depping & Jørgensen. During production, the sensibility of the design has been translated to modern robotic machinery that is reviewed and operated by skilled craftsmen. The result is a precisely crafted piece of design that benefits from modern machinery while retaining human sensibility.
Praise from the press
All pieces have been awarded the EU Ecolabel, which vouches not only for the sustainability of the materials used, but also for the consideration of the environmental impact a product has in its lifetime.
The Cross Chair is quickly becoming a contemporary classic. The slick, flat-pack work has been winning admirers worldwide since its launch in 2019.
Takt and Manz hope that the “intuitive” design will help avoid the frustrations that people often encounter with self-assembly flat-pack furniture.
Arc chair has two wood options available: Beech and Oak, each of which has a different aesthetic effect. Beech wood is sturdy and durable yet relatively flexible. Its widespread use is a testament to its unpretentious and approachable nature. The Oak version is more rustic in appearance. The surface is treated with natural oils. This treatment allows the wood to develop a characterful patina over time, and will also enable you to easily repair damage to the surface by applying light sandpaper and a new oil treatment – again and again.
All of our products are FSC® certified. FSC® certified forrests are given time to naturally regenerate, local wildlife is sustained and worker conditions are balanced.
Arc Chair is designed through TAKT’s Eco System Design principles and are shipped component based as flat packs. We can pack three times more products in the same volume and therefore minimise CO2 emissions during transportation. Arc Chair is eco-certified and produced using wood from sustainable forests and other controlled material, just as the full supply chain is certified. It is constructed for disassembly, meaning that all components are replaceable and worn parts can be replaced. Comes with a five-year warranty. Comes with a five-year warranty.
We don’t service an expensive network of physical retail stores or distribution warehouses. We work directly with the best furniture workshops. When we receive your order, we dispatch the product from our central warehouse in Denmark and ship it to you directly. That is how we can put more value into the product, sell it to you at a fair price and keep you informed along the way.
We continue the tradition of design for everyone by being fair and up-front with our prices.
We price things fairly, so you don’t pay more than needed for good quality, but also so you pay enough to fairly support our workers, source our materials in sustainable ways, and build a business that is able to sustain itself. That’s why we believe in transparency from production, to transport to pricing.
The design is clean and simple, yet with a sculptural expression. The chair frame is made of metal tubes combined with a unique saddle connection to ensure a smooth transition where the hard metal meets the softer wood.Depping & Jørgensen
