WHERE IT ALL STARTED
A seat in Siena was originally designed in 1960 for a Danish fisherman, who needed a small, flexible piece of furniture that he could bring on the boat and easily move around. It travelled the world with him until he retired and moved to the town where he had the most memorable evening of his life... Siena, Italy.
The stool retired with him.
After several years, the stool returned to Denmark, where the design was updated and the stool was relaunched under the name, "a seat in Siena" in 2021.
THE PEOPLE BEHIND
The team behind a seat in Siena consists of two women who met during their studies in Berlin and a network of independent producers.
