Icelandic design from 1962

This product is one of the Icelandic design classics: Gunnar Magnusson's Inka collection, Sofa and Lounge Chair.

The first version of the Inka chair premiered in 1962 at the Fredericia exhibition in Bella Center, Copenhagen, where Gunnar lived and worked at the time.

About the designer

Gunnar Magnússon is one of the big names
of Icelandic design history and received the
Honorary Awards at the Icelandic Design
Award in 2021.

Gunnar's designs attracted a lot of attention
abroad and he worked in collaboration with
some of the leading Danish designers such
as Børge Mogensen as well as achieving
acknowledgements in international design
competitions in the 60’s of the last century.

He returned with his family to Iceland in
1964, where he founded his own studio and
worked for four decades on numerous
projects for families and companies, among
others for the Parliament of Iceland, Banks
and Universities.

FÓLKs reproduction of Inka

In the reproduction, FÓLK builds on its
focus on sustainability and circularity of
materials. Inka is produced in Latvia, it is
transported in a flat pack, is easy to
assemble and has a removable upholstery.

Our Approach to Sustainability

The form of the Inka

Gunnar's Inka design is a true classic both
from a design and aesthetic point of view.
The Inka chair is made of two squares that
form legs and arms.

Above, they are held together by an outer
frame that supports the back. The width of
the arms is for comfort, where you can rest
your hands or put down a nice cup of coffee.

 

Upholstery Textile

The upholstery textile is from Danish
textile company Kvadrat, and is produced
in Norway. The textile, Hallingdal 65,
conforms to EU Ecolabel.

Another option for the upholstery is
Chalet by Swedish textile company Astrid.
This textile option is special order only.

All parts are detachable and textile
can be dry cleaned.

Prolonging the lifetime of your living room furniture

The Inka is a classic design, made to last and
be passed down through generations.

With a sturdy base you can easily
disassemble, customize and reassemble,
the removable upholstery can be washed
or changed into new.

The perfect opportunity to dip your toes in
and try out timeless Icelandic design, The
Inka is now available for order.
