Sigurd Ressell is a Norwegian designer well-known for creating armchairs in steel and leather. The Falcon chair, being one of them, is the most notable.
The Falcon chair by Sigurd Ressell was designed in the 1970s and then produced by Vatne Mobler. The cushioned leather seat and back are formed and supported by a steel frame and legs. The shape looks and feels like sitting on a hammock.
Originally the chair was called Blank Vals and was a result of a furniture competition for the Industry Council. Upon production, it became a hit within 2 years worldwide. It was also seen in the movie Malcolm and Marie.
