Design: Mia Gammelgaard 2O1O was a new friend in wood. Rounded lines, which were friendly and welcoming, the chair design denoted a wooden chair, which took the distinctive lines of a traditional Swedish stick-back chair and a generous helping of light- hearted modernity was added.
The unique chair equalized between the graceful poise of a ballerina and the strength and stability of a hippopotamus. The chair was premier showing at the Danish Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition, “White-Out” in Copenhagen on 29 October 2010. The table Potamus, was showed for the first time at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2011. The table denoted the perfect partner for Hippo chair and could be applied in, for example, cafés or restaurant settings.
Stockholm 2011: designer Mia Gammelgaard of Copenhagen displayed this wooden chair with leg warmers for Swedish firm via Blå Station at Stockholm Furniture Fair last week. Alongside the Hippo chair Gammelgaard published a matching three-legged table named Potamus. Blå Station proposed a competition to design leg warmers for the chair, voted for by visitors to their stand at the fair. Stockholm Furniture Fair was placed 8-12 February.
