About A Seat in Siena

A seat in Siena was originally designed in 1960 for a Danish fisherman, who needed a small, flexible piece of furniture that he could bring on the boat and easily move around. It travelled the world with him until he retired and moved to the town where he had the most memorable evening of his life, Siena in Italy.

The stool retired with him.

​After several years, the stool returned to Denmark, where it landed in the hands of the grandson of it's original maker. Being a cabinetmaker himself, he decided to give it a 2021 makeover. Teamed up with a girl he knew, and together they launched "a seat in Siena" in 2021.

The ideology behind a seat in Siena:

Compact living​

The stools are designed to meet the changing needs of urban life.

At night as a bedside table. During dinner as an extra seat around the dining table. On Sundays next to your sofa or favorite armchair. 

Optimal use of time and labour 

All editions of a seat in Siena are handmade in Denmark and produced from scrap wood from large scale productions and in the workshop’s overtime.

In practice this means that when you buy a seat in Siena you support a production set up, which focuses on optimal and circular use of raw material and Danish expertise and craftsmanship.

Beauty marks

Because a seat in Siena is produced from scrap wood, they sometimes come with beauty marks. These are never patina from wear and tear, but it can for example be a small knob or a slight difference to be traced in the wood’s vein structure. 

We think that these marks are beautiful and a part of, what makes a seat in Siena unique. We hope that you will cherish them too, if you should be so lucky, that exactly your stool is born with one.

KEEP IT GLOSSY

The glossy editions are a playful, yet practical addition to any home. The vibrant and fluorescent hues are obtained by a custom mix of colour and multiple layers of clear coat. The seat is coated plywood. Just like on the original edition of a seat in Siena, where the seat was hand-painted in mint blue. Piano Black and Perfect Nude are part of the standard collection, where as Siena Pink and Swimming Pool Blue are editions (each 200.) 

Wear and tear. As any other painted product the surface can be scratched if exposed for heavy use or direct contact with sharp items. The seat is very easy to clean with a damp cloth.
