Toben Dining Chair


Peter Qvist

Toben Dining Chair


Toben is a tribute to furniture as an art form - a dining chair’s answer to a symphony orchestrated by Danish furniture designer / architect Peter Qvist.

Toben dining chair consists of laminated birch veneer individually oiled and waxed, and approx 40 meters polyester line.


This dining chair has a peculiar and almost a cartoon character-like design expression. The name ‘Toben’ (in English : 2 legs) comes because the chair has only 2 legs, but is also inspired by the fairy-tale with the same name ‘Toben’ by the Danish author Carl Ewald (1856-1908). The fairytale is the story of a cunning 2-legged animal arriving in Africa’s savanna, and the other animals think that ‘Toben’ cannot be a real animal.

Internationally acclaimed Qvist has a distinct style of expression that is recognizable throughout his furniture, architecture and art projects. Qvist has made it his trademark to combine advanced 3D modeling with skilled craftsmanship. An uncompromising approach to creating unique furniture led to the perfect balance between design, functionality and art.
