Hildur chair

Comfortable seat & backrest

The fabric is soft and breathable, ensuring comfort when in use over a long time. The front edge of the seat is soft and yielding, further adding to the chair’s comfort. Both the seat and backrest are easily replaceable, making the chair both durable and easily maintained.

Lighter chair
less physical strain

A light chair means it’s easier to manoeuvre and set up, on or off a trolley, which saves both time and labour.

Hildur chair stack

up to 40 chairs

Stackable upholstered steel frame chairs generally weigh between 6 and 8 kg (13–17 lbs) but the Hildur chair is only 4 kg (8.8 lbs). Its light weight improves safety when stacking and moving around on a trolley. This also makes it easier to stack the chairs higher and save storage space.

Hildur chair linking glides

Easy to link together

The linking glides are replaceable and transparent. They are made of polycarbonate plastic and their base is made of TPU soft plastic, which can be replaced separately.

Strong lightweight frame

The steel frame is made of a very strong, high-tension, lightweight tube, welded together by a robotic welding machine.

Hildur chair numbering system

Numbering system

The numbering system is simple and can be adjusted to different needs. Printing the numbers is easy and can for example be done using a label maker app for smartphones. The numbers can be made to fit different setups and they are easy to store.


The Hildur chair is the ideal choice for multifunctional spaces like conference halls, hotels, schools and workplaces. It combines comfort, durability and practicality, achieved through innovative design and attention to detail.

The Designer
Valdimar Harðarson

Valdimar’s ambition has always been to design a stackable chair that is lightweight, comfortable and multifunctional. He has been working on and improving his design for the past 12 years. In 2010 he introduced the chair, which has, among other places, been in use at the Harpa Concert and Conference Centre in Iceland since its opening. With the newest version, Valdimar has finally fulfilled his design ambitions. The chair is both beautiful and functional: it is light, easy to move, and stackable, which makes it ideal for a number of different functions.

& Sustainability

The Hildur chair is a timeless Scandinavian design, it will never go out of style. We take pride in using durable and high-quality materials. By utilizing these materials, we ensure that the chair lasts longer and does not need to be replaced as frequently, reducing its environmental impact.

In addition, the Hildur chair's replaceable seat and backrest provide a sustainable solution for refreshing its appearance. Rather than disposing of the entire chair, the replaceable components allow for easy refurbishment, reducing waste and promoting a circular economy.

The weight and volume of the Hildur chair are also integral to its sustainability. The chair's lightweight construction and ability to stack up to 40 chairs on a trolley significantly reduce its carbon footprint during transportation and storage. This feature also allows for more efficient use of space, reducing the need for excess storage and minimizing the environmental impact of transportation.

Finally, our manufacturers' adherence to the ISO 14001 environmental management system standard ensures that our production processes meet the highest environmental standards. By continuously assessing and improving our environmental performance, we reduce our environmental impact and ensure that the Hildur chair is a sustainable option for seating.
