Designed in 1997, Morten Gøttler's elegant Cuba Chair is a good example of the Scandinavian design heritage and the careful balancing of clarity of form and function. The chair, which after just a couple of decades has become a true classic, is now being introduced in a new variant with the seat and back in paper cord, giving the Cuba Chair an even lighter and more refined expression.
Exquisite textures, natural materials and practicality
The MG501 Cuba Chair by Morten Gøttler takes extra seating to a new level. It features a solid oak frame, with the cotton girths around the frame forming a comfortable seat and back and providing excellent support as they gently follow the body’s contours.
This folding lounge chair is ideal as an extra or permanent fixture. Its light and foldable frame can easily be hung on a wall or placed on a floor stand for convenient storage. Meanwhile, the chair has all the elegance of a sculpture with its natural materials, clean cotton webbing and evident craftsmanship. In short, it beautifully embodies the concept of complex simplicity.
The MG501 Cuba Chair paper cord thus captures all Gøttler is known for – his clean, easy aesthetic and well-thought-out form, as well as his designs offering exquisite comfort, and close attention to detail – all created using high-quality materials.
