Design by Patrick Norguet
Kalm is Artifort’s large, new cosy armchair by our French designer Patrick Norguet. It is a sanctuary in its own right, a place to unwind and get comfortable. With Kalm, Patrick Norguet has created an iconic, luxurious and comfortable high-back armchair for your living room or study.
Kalm is not only a beautiful chair that will earn a special place for itself in your home. According to Norguet, it is also ‘an expressive armchair that is suitable in any project environment. Several Kalm armchairs grouped together will definitely define a hotel lobby or meeting room and create a distinguished and iconic image.’
Kalm can be combined with a matching footstool, which has an upholstered cushion in the same shape as the cushion in the chair.
A statement of clean and expressive lines.

Textile or leather.
-- 4-legged wood: the wooden base of the armchair and footstool are finished in a standard Artifort oil colour.
-- swiveling cross base: the metal cross base of the armchair (swiveling) and footstool (not swiveling) are finished in a standard Artifort powder coat colour. Polished stainless steel is an option.
As an option, the armchair and footstool with a cross base is offered 5 cm higher. That makes the seat height of the Kalm armchair 47 cm.

Norguet (1969, France) made his breakthrough as a designer at the end of the nineteen-nineties. With his sense of colour, formal restraint and elegant purity coupled with character and his continual search for comfort, it’s not surprising that he started designing for Artifort in 2002. In this year he designed the characteristic Apollo armchair followed by various successful pieces. Various museums around the world have included products designed by him in their collections. Norguet is also celebrated for designing high-end offices, the Okko hotels and the McDonalds restaurant on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. In 2014, GQ Magazine voted him ‘Designer of the Year 2014’.
