Siesta Classic

by LK Hjelle

In 1965 Ingmar Relling designed his greatest creation, the Siesta chair. The chair played an important part of the Norwegian furniture industry’s growth and international success in the mid 1900s. True to its origin and to Ingmar Relling’s original idea of the Siesta chair – an elegant design, an optimised use of materials and an outstanding comfort. The soft cushions make Siesta Classic the typical easy chair, but the light frame gives the chair a beautiful sense of lightness. Together, the cushions and the slightly flexible frame ensure a very high level of seating comfort. The result? Siesta Classic is the perfect seat for relaxation, the perfect spot for a classic siesta.
