This is the Mammoth chair. Given its name, we would expect it to be a little more imposing. The armchair is quite sleek in fact. Of course, it could be just a clever strategy that induces the idea of greatness just so that we wouldn’t find the piece so bulky. Whatever the strategy was, the Mammoth chair is surprisingly slender and slim.
The armchair was designed by Knut Bendik Humlevik and Rune Krøjgaard for NORR 11. It’s a hand-crafted piece of furniture and it’s made of oak wood. It actually comes in two variants. On one hand, we have the “Fluffy” version. This one is an upholstered model featuring premium fabric. On the other hand, there’s also the “Slim” version of the chair and this model comes with leather upholstery and has a more slender look.
Both versions of the chair have been inspired by the shape of the mammoth. Of course, it’s a very simple representation with few consistencies. It has a simple and timeless design inspired by the classic Scandinavian design art and it’s also a contemporary representation of the classical wing chair. It has an ergonomic design that provides maximum comfort and its overall dimensions are 89 cm width x 87 cm depth x 104 cm height. The design is identical for both versions and only the materials used for the upholstery are different.
