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.

Hermann lounge

Hermann Lounge is what happens when a German and a Danish designer walks into a bar, combines their cultural heritage and walks out with nothing short of a masterpiece. This is a lounge chair with a comfortable seat, and an ability to make any lounger’s heart beat faster.

The core of Hermann Lounge is the winged silhouette and the inviting curves that make you wonder where wood grows like that in the wild. The curves are what makes it beautiful, sure, but it’s also what makes it durable. As the body is made from as few different parts as possible, the seat feels both solid and comfortable – and will do for years to come.

Hermann Lounge is available in either light or dark oak, or in a beautiful walnut option. The cushion comes in two finishes; one made from pretty upholstery or one made from elegant leather. Yes, it will easily hold its own in any setting, but pair one with the Hermann Lounge Table, and you’re next in line for a lifestyle magazine photoshoot.
