With Mond Zwölf Rittergut & Runnymede are presenting their vision of a reading chair 69 years after the release of The Reading Chair, a typical Danish mid-century design. Mond Zwölf combines a modern and sculptural design with a hint of playfulness with its winged armrest. This exhilarating design has gone through a two-year sculptural design process, leading to 12 (zwölf) versions to master this one-armed design. Like the work of a sculptor, the design was carved from solid pieces of wood to create the perfect balance between sculptural forms and sleek lines. The single armrest representing the waning and the waxing crescent of the moon (Mond) invites you to immerse yourself in a most inspiring book at the end of a well-lived day. The name Mond Zwölf is a nod to the furniture craftspeople of the past in Schönberg, the home of Rittergut & Runnymede, to a part of its history many decades ago that is reemerging through these contemporary yet timeless designs. Like all pieces of Rittergut & Runnymede design furniture, Mond Zwölf is a chair that demands presence, presence in the room it stands in and the presence of the people interacting with it. Like a great book, it makes you think and surprises you.
