Designer bio

Danish architect Morten Gøttler was originally trained in shipping but became a self-taught designer recognized for his exceptional understanding of wood.

Since opening his own design studio in 1972, Gøttler has worked with a wide range of designs - from packaging to toys to lighting - for Danish and international companies.

In 1984 he decided to focus primarily on furniture design.

Morten Gøttler's approach is rooted in the modern Scandinavian design tradition. He focuses on a clean, easy aesthetic that is simultaneously characterized by exquisite comfort, a close attention to detail, and high quality materials.

In 1997 he designed a light, flexible folding lounge chair, The Cuba Chair. The chair is a great example of contemporary design and displays strong links to previous masters. The chair is built upon a solid oak wood frame, with durable cotton girths woven around the foldable frame creating a comfortable seat and back and providing excellent support as they gently follow the body's contours.
