Sander Chair by Roger Persson for Karl Andersson & Söner

Sander armchair rewinds the history of Karl Andersson & Söner back to the 1950s, when the vogue was for log-cabin furniture, Svensk Fur, inspired by German Bierstube styling – robust, wooden furnishings made of pine. With its gracefully curved veneer back and gentle lines Sander is a modern variant of the log-cabin armchair that combines good sitting comfort with its own distinct design style.

Adding a covered back pad enhances the comfort even further. The solid wooden armrests have been machined, sanded and buffed to echo the gentle expression and function of the chair. Sander is available as an armchair with a padded seat, padded or unpadded back, and with or without armrests. The chair comes in a choice of two seat heights: 430 mm and 470 mm. Choose from oak, ash, standard stains on ash, or white glaze on oak or ash. The seat and back may be covered in a fabric of choice or real or synthetic leather, according to customer wishes. Fabrics should generally be somewhat stretchable. Avoid striped/checkered patterns. A removable seat cover with an interliner of hospital-grade fabric or lining cloth is available as an optional extra.

The armchair is supplied assembled. Hand tools are all that is needed to simply detach the back shell from the leg frame. It is a simple matter to separate seat and back, if the chair is to be re-covered. Sander is a compact armchair with a genuine wood feel. A choice of two seat heights makes it equally at home both in a domestic setting and in public spaces.
