The He & She Chairs are designed by Danish architect and CEO at Earth Studio, Eva Harlou. The chairs express elegance and function in the room. The seats and backrests are crafted from FSC certified oak and the cane work is made from rattan — a fast-growing and naturally harvested material selected to support the sustainable choice of material. The cane work is applied to the wooden oak frame in a proud 3rd generation Danish wicker workshop, thereby translating an old craft tradition into the new modern design age. The bend steel frames make the chairs flexible and dynamic.
The He & She Chairs are launched in 2019 to celebrate the 100 years anniversary of the German architect Walter Gropius who founded the Bauhaus school in 1919. Bauhaus was the most influential modernist art school of the 20th century.
The He & She honour the UN Sustainable Development Goals by protecting “Life on Land” (SDGs 15), “Responsible Consumption and Production” (SDGs 12) and supporting “Partnership for the Goals” (SDGs 17).
Eva Harlou is a Danish architect and designer who has also worked as a presenter on Danish TV shows focusing on architecture. After graduating from the Aarhus School of Architecture in 2003, Harlou started her successful career at the Copenhagen-based 3XN Architects, and in 2006 she opened her own studio. Harlou sees architecture and design as both handcraft and art, which gives an organic and imaginative undertone for her work. Still, her designs often settle in clear and functional forms. Thanks to their recognizable style, Harlou’s architectural projects have drawn a lot of attention, and since 2014 she has also contributed to the Scandinavian design world with her furniture and product designs.
