The brand is steeped in cultural references, imagination and emotional aesthetics. It is about craftsmanship, with an insistence on sourcing only the best-quality materials.
Crafted from solid Swedish pine, Horse is a brutal yet sensual armchair distinguished by its raw form. Horse is inspired by the contrasting ideals of ABC societal architecture and ”Allmoge" – a traditional Swedish peasantry genre of architecture used up until the 20th-century.
