daumiller armchair

Design Rainer Daumiller, 1977
FSC® Certified Radiata Pine
Made by Gubi

Solid in construction, simple in form, and sculptural in expression, the Daumiller Armchair's straightforward materiality and robust composition pay tribute to Rainer Daumiller's lifelong affinity with natural materials and forms. Constructed in sustainable solid Pine just as the original pieces produced by Hirtshals Sawmill in 1977 were, the seat and backrest are ergonomically adapted to the contours of the body, which only adds to the bold, retro expression of this Danish design classic.

Daumiller first had the idea for the armchair when he was living on a farm commune in the early 1970s, but it wasn't until he moved to Hirtshals on Denmark's Jutland coast in 1975, that he found the time to develop it properly. Inspired by the traditional Danish milking stool as well as the China Chair by Hans J. Wegner, Daumiller set out to create a chair that would be able to withstand both children's play and adults' parties, and at the same time have a sculptural form that radiated strength and timelessness.

Comfort was a major consideration. With no textiles or upholstery, Daumiller ensured that the seat is generously proportioned and that the wood itself is ergonomically adapted to the contours of the body, resulting in a chair that the user can comfortably remain seated in long after the meal is over.

Launched at a time when awareness of sustainable forestry was widening, and tapping into a growing appreciation for alternatives to less renewable woods, the pine armchair became a bestseller. Its success kickstarted a collaboration between the designer and the sawmill that lasted for over two decades. The Daumiller Armchair remained a beloved piece among aficionados of Scandinavian design long after production ceased. GUBI is honored to return the Daumiller Armchair to the market. Working in collaboration with Rainer Daumiller himself, GUBI has brought the original design back into production, making the chair available in a lacquered golden pine.
