C.F. Møller’s Wave chair for Ground Zero

C.F. Møller’s Wave chair for Ground Zero - C.F. Møller

7.1.2013

180 auditorium chairs designed by C.F. Møller Design are to be used in the memorial museum for the 9-11 terrorist attacks: the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York.

The Wave auditorium chair, which was designed for Skeie, a Norwegian manufacturer of fixed chairs for the educational and cultural sector, will be used in a pavilion in the 9-11 Memorial Museum.

The museum is located on that part of Ground Zero where the World Trade Center stood, and consists of a park with two pools, symbolising the twin towers, and a museum pavilion with a permanent exhibition of objects, photos and videos from and about the tragic event. The museum has been designed by the Norwegian architectural firm Snöhetta.

The chair manufacturer, Skeie, won the contract for the 180 auditorium chairs for the museum pavilion in strong competition with several US manufacturers, and although the order is not large, it is highly prestigious. It is the only non-American product to be included in the building.

High-profile project
"We are very pleased and proud that Skeie has succeeded in getting Wave included in such a high-profile project," says Jon Brøcker, head of C.F. Møller Design, which is behind the development of the chair. "This proves that the chair meets the stringent aesthetic, safety and functional demands of the US, and that the design can function in the most demanding auditorium environments."

Wave has been honoured with the Award for Design Excellence in Norway and the Red Dot Design Award 2010. The chair has been manufactured since 2009, and is used in auditoriums in many different types of buildings in Europe, one of the more famous being the auditorium in Geneva for CERN (the European laboratory for research into particle physics).
