A true design icon
The Ekstrem chair from Varier is seen as one of Norway’s first postmodern designs and has achieved iconic status due to its unique and visionary qualities. It is an object that invites a multitude of interpretations. With its unusual shape and empathic linkage of structure and function, the Ekstrem is based on a functional analysis of varied sitting positions while still providing unparalleled comfort: It is an invitation to play and a throw back in the pop culture.
At the same time, there is something uniquely artistic about its well-proportioned assemblage of cylinders. Ekstrem manifests a rare blend of functionality, dynamism and creative imagination. Relaunched at the 2018 Milan Design Week in 5 new vibrant colors, the chair is back in the design scene with a bang! Get your own customized new preferred chair!

Designed by Terje Ekstrøm
Like many talented industrial designers of his generation, Terje Ekstrøm had one foot in crafts and the other in industry. He trained as a cabinet maker and upholsterer before studying interior and furniture design at the National College of Art and Design in Oslo, Norway.
Ekstrøm’s work contributed to a new vitality and independence to the Norwegian design scene of the 70s and 80s, at a time of significant cultural and social change. Ekstrøm represented a new generation of designers who challenged the ideas of Scandinavian design. Although he is today seen as one of Norway’s first postmodern designers, Ekstrøm’s original output and its mediation is also connected to the ideals of the modern movement and later pop culture.
Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. Since it is not possible to guarantee our online colors will look the same on all computers, we do not guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the color of the actual product. However we give you as many high quality pictures as possible to give you the closest rendering.
The fabric Knit is an excellent furniture fabric with its durable and natural resilient properties. The woolen upholstery textile is custom made specifically for Ekstrem by Norwegian Devold. Knitted from one continuous thread, it provides an elasticity which is essential when fitted to the chair’s organic shape. The knitted fabric provides a soft and breathable surface and features a classic quadratic pattern.
