Eilersen is celebrating its 120th Anniversary with the launch of a new chair.
The Eilersen name first appeared on the scene in 1895, when a young Niels Eilersen founded a wheelwright shop, which grew over time and changed as new generations took over. Four generations have each developed and expanded upon this fine craftsmanship in their own way: today, EILERSEN is an internationally recognised and respected furniture house with a focus on quality, design and manufacture of sofas, chairs, tables, bookcases and cushions.
120 years have passed and Eilersen is celebrating by launching a wooden chair and a rocking chair. It was wood and woodwork that formed the foundation of the business and even today, it remains a central element of Eilersen's furniture making.

IW2 and IW3 are the names of both a chair and a rocking chair, designed in 1958 by the Danish furniture architect Kristian Illum Wikkelsø. This chair's comfort and the countless possibilities it represents for painting in a vast array of shades made it the perfect choice. Eilersen decided to spray-coat the IW2 and IW3 in eight colours from the graphic shades between white and black and in matte pastels. The simple expression of form inherent to these chairs and their straightforward design means they will match any interior, table or sofa.
Available standard colours and material:
Beech, lacquered, matt in black, ivory, charcoal, concrete, navy, scarlet, lime and ginger.
Oak, nature, oil treated.
The IW2 chair has passed the test after standards:
EN 1022:2005 Domestic furniture - Seating - Determination of stability.
EN 16139:2013 Furniture - Strength, durability and safety - Requirements for non-domestic seating.
For use in:
office buildings, showrooms, public halls, function rooms, cafés, restaurants, canteens, banks, bars.
