Terje Ekstrøm, 1984

Ekstrem is not merely a chair, but rather a stand-alone object. It represents one of Norway’s first postmodern designs. Its unexpected geometrics allows you to sit forward with feet on the ground, sideways with legs placed on the armrests or completely backward with the front of the torso against the chair’s back. A sitting experience that can only be described as out of the ordinary.

Ekstrem consists of a steel frame covered in soft foam and woolen knit upholstery. It is available in six colorways in Knit, a bespoke woolen upholstery textile by Devold. Knitted from one continuous thread, it provides an elasticity that is essential when fitted to the chair’s organic shape. The knitted fabric is soft, breathable and features a classic quadratic pattern.
