Kevi swivel chair design Jørgen Rasmussen 1973

Today the chair series is a design icon, and is among many architects’ favourites. Among other things, the Kevi chair was included in the Danish Design Project, which involved furnishing the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York with Danish design objects.

Their popularity was partly the result of their timeless design, but also Jørgen Rasmussen's invention of the Kevi wheel in 1965. This innovation meant that the chairs could move freely and easily. Jørgen Rasmussen received much recognition and many awards for this invention. Many believe that there is still no better wheel for chairs than the Kevi wheel
