Handvärk's clean-lined take on functional elegance finds its apogee in Paragon, a timeless chair that is light and slender yet strong and sturdy. Defined by a graphic silhouette, in the hands of studio Says Who the design gains depth and complexity with its black steel framework and X-shaped cross-bracing. For the solid-oak seat and broad backrest—both generously proportioned and comfortably curved—choose from a natural, smoked or black wood finish.

Aesthetic sustainability. This is the Handvärk way.
Designer and architect Emil Thorup founded the company in 2015 with an emphasis on handcrafted furnishings, stripped down to their functional and graphic essence, and made of luxe materials to stand the length of time.
The Nordic DNA notwithstanding, the brand’s hallmark are the brackets repeated at least 8-12 times per piece. So, too, are the materials: in contrast to the penchant for wood by his fellow Danes, Emil focuses on premium steel, brass, iron, marble and leather. From the Modular Sofa with Chaise to the spare Console or Studio Floor Lamp, these basics are anything but.
