Siesta Lounge Armchair | Ingmar Relling | Westnofa | Norway | 1970s

Siesta chair model by Ingmar Relling for Westnofa, 1970s. Norwegian architect and designer Ingmar Relling (1920-2002) is known as one of Norway’s most internationally recognized designers and is considered a major player in the Scandinavian modern Mid-Century  design movement. 

In 1965, Relling, in collaboration with his son Knut Relling, designed the Siesta Chair which won him first prize (in the same year) at a competition organized by the Industry Council for Furniture. Relling was passionate about creating furniture that was ergonomic and eco-friendly, ensuring that his pieces were made in a way that could be repaired. The frame was typically constructed of bent and laminated beech harvested from sustainable forests. The Siesta Chair showcased Relling’s minimalist design aesthetic that was uncompromising on quality, and it became his career-defining design. It was a huge commercial success, and the big break Norwegian furniture manufacturer Westnofa was waiting for to break into the international market.
