Salamanca folding chair from Skovshoved Møbelfabrik. The chair is seen in different designs in many places in Spain and the brand chose to name their version of the chair after the Spanish city of Salamanca – the city where the Salamanca Declaration was adopted – on children's right to education. "Perhaps the participants sat on the same type of chairs?", asks the owner of the furniture factory reflectively. Sold online only.
The Salamanca folding chair is unique in the sense that it goes "completely into itself" when folded - and thus takes up very little space when stored. The chair is suitable both indoors and outdoors and is part of the range from Skovshoved Møbelfabrik for the 10th year.
Skovshoved Møbelfabrik has over time found the inspiration for their garden furniture from existing classics all around Denmark.
The brand's furniture is produced in Poland from wood, harvested in Europe. The factory requires producers and sub-suppliers to be able to document proper working conditions, no use of child labour, proper wages and documentation of the origin of the wood and the work behind it – for example replanting.
In 2009, Skovshoved Møbelfabrik decided to replace the turpentine-based paint with water-based paint in the varnishing process – three years before the EU legislated in the area.
