Located on the grounds of Copenhagen's Kastellet Castle, overlooking the promenade that houses the Little Mermaid, the Langelinie Pavilion stands in a tough spirit. The first pavilion was built in 1885. The second one was built in 1902 for the Royal Danish Yacht Club, but it was sadly destroyed during World War II. The current pavilion was built in 1958 by the couple of architects Eva and Niels Koppel in homage to modernism. Echoing its own resilience is the Pavilion chair by Andersen & Voll. Here the challenge was to design a stackable chair used for massive seats in this iconic multipurpose place, the Langelinie Pavilion. Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll wanted to link early modernism with the new modernism.

"Often, tube chairs are built at fixed angles," says Anderssen. "We wanted a freer form of expression and we explored the idea of ​​bent pipes combined with bent plywood." "The Pavilion chair has a feeling of spaciousness, with thin arms and legs that give it a light appearance," Voll explains. "A softer aesthetic in a curvilinear silhouette that is barely there." The effect is lyrical, elegant and poetic. Almost like a tied rope that has been undone.
