It must be in line with the mantra of H.J. Wegner, Nanna Ditzel and Børge Mogensen. Creating beautiful, comfortable and long lasting furniture for everyday use. If possible at affordable prices.
At the time when Getama started a cooperation with Wegner, most manufacturers were more specialised. Getama was known for manufacturing furniture and mattresses with springs. Alas, we were contacted by Wegner, who wanted Getama to produce chairs and sofas with springs. Later the cooperation was expanded to other products.

As we wanted to expand the number of architects/ designers working with Getama, we chose to reach out to Nanna Ditzel. We knew her a little bit, and felt it would be great to include furniture from a female designer in our range.

We have two that are very special to us. The first is The Møller Center at Churchill College in Cambridge. This Center was a gift from the Møller family. (Maersk Line). It was given to show the gratitude from Denmark towards the UK for their support during World War II. The Center was entirely furnished with Wegner furniture from Getama, PP furniture and Carl Hansen. The second project would be The Royal Danish Play House (Skuespilhuset) in Copenhagen. It’s one of the most fun and beautiful larger projects we ever made.
Keep it simple. By choosing good quality furniture in long-lasting materials you create the base that allows you to then begin adding more personalised pieces like paintings, posters or cherished objects or furniture that has been passed down from family or friends…

It must be the GE290 Plank Chair in the low version. It’s very comfortable and mixes easily with other furniture.
