With great respect for the Danish design traditions, Esben Pilgaard Jørgensen has designed the iconic CORDYARD series. The series is created with a background in the designer’s fascination with steel, as well as the possibilities of combining functionality with classic paper braid. The new way of combining the materials gives the chair a timeless look with a modern twist and a design with both edge and position.
A modern classic
The CORDYARD is the perfect dining table chair, but it is also very useful in the office, in the hallway and in the bedroom. You can choose the chair with and without armrests, which gives you many options in your decor. If you choose to use it at the dining table, you can advantageously combine chairs with and without armrests to create a varied expression. The beautiful light wicker and the black contrast of the steel frame give you a chair that fits in most places.
CORDYARD gives you the ultimate seating experience. The elegant curved supports in just the right places, and the hand-braided seat makes you sit well and comfortably. With the CORDYARD chair you can sit at the dining table for hours with good friends and family. And if you choose the variant with armrests, you get natural rest in a comfortable position.
The cordyard chair is designed to last for generations. This means you get a timeless and durable chair that can last the rest of your life if you take good care of it.
The frame is made of recyclable, powder-coated steel. The chair’s back, seat and armrests are hand-braided in the classic way with FSC-certified paper braid. When the chair has to be discarded in many years, wicker and steel can be easily separated so that it can be sorted and recycled.
The steel frame requires no maintenance.
Wicker paper has been used on chairs for generations and it is very durable and durable. As it is a natural material, it is patinated and aged in the most beautiful way.
If you spill on the seat, it can be wiped off with a hard-wrung cloth. But avoid washing too much on it, as the surfaces are made of paper braid that can be dissolved by excessive use of water and detergents.
Esben Pilgaard Jørgensen
Esben became interested in craftsmanship and production from birth, when he grew up in a blacksmith family in North Jutland, where he himself is the fifth generation.
As a child, he had his daily routine in the large forging workshop, where both father, uncle and grandfather worked. At a very early age, Esben gained an in-depth knowledge of the craft and metalworking in general. And a budding creative urge arose.
Esben has a degree in Industrial Design from Aalborg University and has founded Pilgaard Design Studio.
Today, he is behind a large number of designs in both furniture and lamps, where quality and craftsmanship play a crucial role. The result is characterized by long-lasting, minimalist and classic designs.
