T02 Soft Chair is designed by Thomas Bentzen with distinct attention to material and functionality. Its organic details result in an unassuming yet graceful character.


Everything in Its Place

Soft Chair is a modern classic featuring a tight frame with soft back and seat curves. It embodies an honest design language in which all parts are visible and a part of the experience. The result is great comfort and seating ergonomics making for truly delightful dinner parties or time spent with friends and loved ones.


Slow Craft Meets Modern Tech

Soft Chair shows an intelligent application of molded veneer, rendering it like a cloth that surrounds the construction. The double curves serve to strengthen the overall construction.



The Woodwork

The Soft Chair frame is made of solid ash: a light wood with beautiful texture and pattern that adds a fine and distinctive expression. Its natural variation between dark and light colours of the wood veins reflect seasonal changes when the tree was growing. We only work in FSC-certified wood to drive sustainable development.


Sustainability

Soft Chair is designed through TAKT’s knock-down principle – the chair is shipped as flat pack and CO2 emissions are minimised when we ship more in less space. Soft Chair is 100% ecolabelled and produced using wood from sustainable forests and the full supply chain is certified. The forests are given time to naturally regenerate, local wildlife is sustained and worker conditions are balanced. It is also constructed for disassembly, meaning that Soft Chair can be separated out into key materials for recycling and worn parts can be replaced. Soft Chair is constructed and tested for durability and has a five-year warranty. The chair is coded with a very thin water based lacquer, that allows easy cleaning while emphasising the delicate structure of the wood.


Transparency

We don’t service an expensive network of physical retail stores. 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.


Pricing made clear

We continue the tradition of design for everyone by being fair and up-front with our prices.
To us, transparency is about inviting the public into our inner-workings so that you can see how we do things – that 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.


We designers have a role to challenge the materials, production, processes, and people so that we can help develop and maintain modern craftsmanship.
