As a furniture designer, Poul Cadovius was mostly known for his iconic shelving systems, like the ROYAL SYSTEM® from 1948. But with the launch of the dining chair PIA CHAIR in 1959, he could also add the title chair designer to the CV.
The thin, conical-shaped solid wooden legs give a light visual expression, which is further emphasized by two fine details; the hand-sanded rounding at the top of the back legs, and the finger joined front legs. The seat is made of hand-woven paper cordel, and the backrest is moulded, which gives an optimal seating comfort. It takes two hours just to hand-weave the seat, so the making of the chair is a time-consuming process which requires patience and high accuracy.
