Whilst a student, in 1925, Jacobsen participated in the Paris Art Deco fair, Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, where he won a silver medal, for his first furniture design, which was a chair made in rattan, simply called The Paris Chair.
With the utmost respect to the original designs, Sika have put the chairs of Arne Jacobsen, Nanna & Jørgen Ditzel, Viggo Boesen and R.Wengler back into production. Significant names in Danish design history, they remain important for their groundbreaking creations and experimental use of materials. In their own way, each designer performed magic with the sturdy qualities of rattan and wicker.
Founded in 1940 by Ankjær Andreasen, Sika Design remains a family fun business producing handmade wicker furniture. The company focus on comfort, quality and sustainability in all design and manufacturing processes.
Produced by Sika as part of the Icons range, the Paris outdoor chair is a classic chair for the terrace or garden. Made of Alu-rattan, its construction uses a strong aluminium frame woven with Artfibre for high weather-resistance.
Available in natural colour. An optional seat and back cushion is available in a range of exterior fabrics (see downloadable swatch sheet) or in the customer's own fabric.
