THE INUIT / MENNESKET
the story of the greenlandic man paddling in his kayak
the paddle chair is inspired by the greenland sea paddle.
In the past the only available wood in Greenland was driftwood. To protect the valuable wood the Inuits (as the Greenlandics call themselves) reinforced the paddle with animal bones giving it a unique characteristic expression that is only found in Greenland.
The chair is made of solid smoked oak with oak on the sides and on the tip of the legs - a detail inspired by the Greenland sea paddle.
The chair is named after a children’s song which was used to train the children in learning how to paddle and hunt in a kayak.
