The story behind VILHELM bar stool
VILHELM is designed by the Danish designer Laurits Gersbøll. The task was to design a bar stool that fit Restaurant VILHELM, located at Grønbechs Hotel on Bornholm. The beautiful restaurant is furnished with the HOLMEN dining table and SOLDATEN dining table chairs from MAKE nordic. And when the beautiful old bar needed to be renovated, they contacted us to hear if we would design a bar stool that fit the style. They wanted a bar stool that was stylistically reminiscent of the UMI bench.

How to maintain the bar stool
The hemp belts are completely natural and untreated.
Natural materials such as hemp, flax, wool and wood are living materials. If you spill on them, they work, and over time the stain will shrink, lighten and perhaps disappear completely.
If the accident is out, the best thing you can do is remove as much of the liquid as possible with a hard-wrung soft cloth. Be careful not to rub the liquid further into the strap, but instead dab gently on the exposed area. When cleaning hemp belts, it is important to work in the fields. One field at a time and avoid cleaning half a field to avoid stains or stains. Use mild and colorless dishwashing detergent mixed with water for cleaning. Avoid too much water as it can cause stains.
Like other furniture, the light wicker seats on VILHELM can be discolored by brightly colored fabrics such as a pair of new cowboy pants. If you want to protect yourself as much as possible against this, it is recommended to use a cushion in the seat. Hemp is a natural material designed to be patinated beautifully and naturally over time.
