The chair is in excellent vintage condition. ———— Rolf Hesland started at Bruksbo design studio in 1950. During the early years he designed a series of armchairs, including Metro and Tuba. Together with Torbjørn Afdal, he developed the shelving system Veggen de Luxe which was a huge commercial success. In 1958 he then designed the armchair Fox. Unique to Fox were the two layers of stretched leather with a layer of moulded polyester in between, providing the back with a distinct shape and stiffness. Hesland’s most famous piece is the LP record cabinet Scala, produced by Bagn Furniture from the second half of the 1960’s.
