Council Family Lounge Chair

Design by
Salto & Sigsgaard


Like the other chairs in the Council Family Series, the lounge version is designed with a consideration for visuality and comfort. The pedestal base gives the chair an airy feel to it, so it doesn’t take up much of the room. The swivel leg compared with the comfortness of the shape, allows this chair to function in many different settings with thought for relaxation. The elegant shape of the chair can be accentuated by upholstering the interior and exterior surfaces in different colours or materials.

Council Family Series

The Council Family is a series of furniture, which includes chairs and accompanying tables, designed by Kasper Salto & Thomas Sigsgaard, who make up the design duo Salto & Sigsgaard. 

The series has emerged from a design process that took its point of departure in New York City 10 years ago when Salto & Sigsgaard entered the winning bid in a 2011-design competition to partially refurbish the interior of the Trusteeship Council Chamber (also known as the Finn Juhl Chamber) at the UN headquarters in New York. In terms of shape, the Council Family Series stands on the shoulders of the iconic winning bid, the Council Chair.

The Council Family Series introduces multiple versions to increase the usage significantly. The series is based on longevity, responsible sourcing, and modern production methods. A fusion moulding technique that is produced via low emission raw materials, ensures that better quality is achieved while being superior in terms of environmental friendliness. The foam employed in the chairs is fire retardant and halogen-free and thus lives up to international standards and certification requirements.

The Council Family Series at Gødstrup Regional Hospital

Organically shaped Danish designs from Onecollection & House of Finn Juhl are united with colourful paintings, digital artworks, mosaics, and relics by Danish artist Erik A. Frandsen at the Regional Hospital Gødstrup. The different elements are sprinkled across the 375-meter-long foyer at the hospital creating a beautiful setting for patients, personnel and relatives.

The Regional Hospital Gødstrup pays tribute to Danish furniture and art while introducing a new standard for hospital design.
