The result of Carl Hansen & Søn’s 2015 dining chair collaboration with renowned Austrian design trio EOOS is a form so expressive, it functions just as comfortably as a stand-alone, sculptural piece.
A recent addition to Carl Hansen & Søn’s portfolio, the Embrace Chair unites EOOS’s strong sense of modern aesthetics with our century-old tradition of quality craftsmanship and outstanding comfort. Pairing a light, wood frame in Carl Hansen & Søn’s characteristic style with soft upholstery, the design creates a simultaneously precise and relaxed expression.
The chair’s wooden structure is continuous, with the legs serving as an essential element of the overall silhouette rather than appendages to the upholstered upper section. The back of the frame, composed of three pieces assembled in classic finger joints, is especially striking. A soft, three-dimensional cushion functions as seat, back and armrests, the upholstery embracing the wooden structure and appearing to float within the frame.
Originally conceived for dining, the Embrace Chair’s multifunctional design makes it a welcoming addition to any living space, hotel lobby, waiting area or conference room.

Passionate craftsmanship means many things to different people. To Carl Hansen it means everything. It has been so ever since 1908 when Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today they continue to build on this simple but strong idea, combining traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.
