or Call to Order

When Ander­ssen & Voll created their Pavil­ion chair series, the award-winning duo drew their design cues from the iconic Langelinie Pavil­ion. Now, this light and lyrical aesthetic has been trans­lated into a compact desk intended to suit both office and home spaces. Designed at the start of the pandemic, the Pavil­ion desk took the demands of home-working into consid­er­a­tion with a version that boasts a back panel.

Avail­able in two versions: AV16 in Black, Mush­room, and Iron, as well as the back­board addi­tion to the desk AV 17 in Mush­room and Iron.

Anderessen & Voll

Norway (2009)

Based in Oslo, partners Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll have been instrumental in putting Norway on the global design map ever since they joined forces in 2009. Anderssen & Voll have received numerous international awards for their work within furniture, lighting and home accessories, including the Wallpaper* Magazine Award, the Red Dot and IF Awards, as well as other accolades for Best Designs and Best Designers of the year. Rather than be defined and confined to a specific way of being, Anderssen & Voll prefer to be open and approach each new project with a feeling of freedom. They develop emotionally-driven designs. Their overall desire is to create designs with souls. To animate something inanimate.

“We’re not dogmatic about it,” says Anderssen and Voll. “We’re quite open. We start designing and watch the piece take on its own personality. It’s almost like breathing life into it.” It’s an ideal approach for tackling a project for Copenhagen’s Langelinie Pavilion, a multi-functional emporium of experiences housed in a modernist building designed in the late 50s. Embracing yet breaking with the tenants of modernism, the Pavilion chair is fluid, graceful and elegant. A stackable tube chair with a beautiful bent plywood base and seat. “We wanted to bridge the old and the new with a curvaceous chair as opposed to the typical rigid lines you often find,” adds Anderssen & Voll. “With its slim lines flowing through the air, it’s a bit poetic. Almost like a delicate rope that came undone.”
