In 2011 the design duo Salto & Sigsgaard won a design competition under the auspices of the Danish Ministry of Culture, to design the furniture for one of the permanent chambers at the United Nations headquarters in New York, The Trusteeship Council Chamber also called the Finn Juhl Chamber.
In connection with this Onecollection has developed produced and delivered a completely new unique and beautiful chair named ”Council Chair” designed by Kasper Salto and Thomas Sigsgaard.
The chairs pass on the baton from Finn Juhl’s iconic design heritage in a sculptural and pleasant direction, which merges shape, colour and natural materials. The chairs are a construction of moulded 3D veneer in oak or walnut, upholstered with leather or fabric. The swivel base is cast in aluminium.
In 2016 and 2017 the Council Chair is part of a campaign where Onecollection gives a donation to the organisation LittleBigHelp for every chair that is sold worldwide. LittleBigHelp is a NGO that works towards improving the living conditions for some of the most vulnerable women and children in West Bengal, India.
