Scandinavian elegance. German durability.

Mencke&Vagnby is a family owned design studio that consists of German industrial designer Karina Mencke and her Danish architect-come-designer husband, Marcus Vagnby. Being a unique family themselves, they’re also the minds behind one of our most unique furniture-families, the Hermann line.

The name Hermann wasn’t just grabbed out of thin air. It’s actually an homage to Karina’s late grandfather Hermnann Mencke, a superbly skilled gardener and son of an equally exceptional carpenter. That family heritage shows up plenty of times across the line. For instance, look out for how the different wood sorts have been expertly manipulated in ways that make unnatural shapes like wings and bows seem freshly picked from nature.

The Hermann family consists of the Hermann Lounge, the Hermann Sofa, the Hermann Lounge Table and lastly the Hermann Dining Chair. Each piece serves their own unique purpose, but that purpose gets higher, when you combine them instead of isolating them.

A dining chair serves a bigger purpose than most ‘normal’ designs would suggest. It’s the place where important conversations are had, where unimportant moments become valuable insights, and where you sit down to chow down with the ones you love most.

That’s why Mencke&Vagnby didn’t take it lightly when they sat out to add a dining chair to the Hermann family. Already widely recognized for its durable yet beautiful design, the multicultural duo decided to boil down the Hermann Lounge chair to its basics. They narrowed the wings, firmed up the core, and added a base structure more suitable to the dangling legs that are a side effect of good conversation. The end product is a beautiful dining chair that will seat different generations for generations to come.

Hermann Dining Chair is available in either light or dark oak or a stunning walnut finish. You can customize the comfortable cushion with either beautifully crafted leather or nitpicked fabrics in many different colours.
