Nabo by Thorsønn is a hand-made lounge chair that is light weight and comfortable. It is made of solid oak with a woven seat made of paper twine. The armrests are just wide enough to place a cup of tea and sturdy enough to support yourself while getting in or out of the chair. The Nabo fits nicely within a home environment or could also be placed in a commercial reception. The back is as carefully considered as the front so that the chair can sit anywhere in the room.
The seat is crafted by Adaptor, a company owned by the Norwegian Association for the Blind, which specialises in a traditional technique of weaving by hand. Adaptor has a work shop adjacent to ours, hence the name Nabo meaning ‘Neighbour’ in Norwegian. The chair is designed and hand-made in Norway.
