Kristina Kjær’s ‘Strik’ armchair wears a knitted sweater over its wooden body. A comfortable armchair that consists of a frame made of ash wood and a knitted upholstery made of wool – a wooden “body” wearing a knitted “sweater”.

“Based on its materials and idiom Strik is rooted in the North and inspired by how we wrap ourselves in warm clothes to protect us from the cold.” says Kjær. “I have worked with the meeting between the traditional and familiar in contrast to the modern and surprising. The result is a chair that invites to closeness, and I welcome you to experience it.”

Strick’s upholstery is also reversible and can be used as a blanket. Strik was shown at the 2013 Stockholm Furniture Fair.
