Eikund – 12th may 2021

NYCxDESIGN Awards Finalist

Fluffy by Eikund is a 2021 NYCxDESIGN Awards Finalist in the Iconic Products category.

We never take nature for granted. We’re inspired by nature every day, to find ways to improve and do better. Photo taken at Egersund.

The Fluffy lounge chair by Fredrik A. Kayser is characterized by its ultra-soft upholstery in Norwegian sheepskin, and its sloping armrests leaning you into a welcoming embrace. Kayser graduated from National Academy of Craft and Art Industry back in 1945 and the lounge chair was designed while being employed at Rastad & Relling Tegnekontor. It combines both art and function into one, a floating cloud of fluffiness that builds on the past for the present. This is a brand-new species that can live anywhere! Designed in 1954.

“We are very excited to be in the finals with Fluffy, which is our statement piece”

– Jørgen Tengesdal, CEO Eikund

About the awards

The NYCxDESIGN Awards honors outstanding products and projects in categories that span major areas of design, from architecture to interiors, from products to accessories.
