Introducing Soft Chair smoked oak
Our popular Soft Chair is now available in smoked oak version. A technique that traditionally has been used as a way to darken wood.
In the past, we imported dark woods from the tropics, but with smoked oak we have our own “tropical” wood of local Nordic origin. In the smoking process, tannic acid mixes with ammonia vapours, lending the material a deep and intense glow. However, as the wood easily gets scratched during this treatment, today a smoked natural oil is often used to obtain the same effect. The oil adds a dark and warm glow to the oak, highlighting the texture and colour differences of the material and makes the surface more durable. If desired, you can repeat the treatment at a later stage in order to brush up the glow. Like all our other products Soft Chair smoked oak is also certified with Ecolabel.
Everything in Its Place
Soft Chair is a modern classic featuring a tight frame with soft back and seat curves. It embodies an honest design language in which all parts are visible and a part of the experience. The result is great comfort and seating ergonomics making for truly delightful dinner parties or time spent with friends and loved ones.

Slow Craft Meets Modern Tech
Soft Chair shows an intelligent application of molded veneer, rendering it like a cloth that surrounds the construction. The double curves serve to strengthen the overall construction.
Praise from the press
All pieces have been awarded the EU Ecolabel, which vouches not only for the sustainability of the materials used, but also for the consideration of the environmental impact a product has in its lifetime.
Design is a serious business and so is the business of design. We visit the Copenhagen furniture firm with a completely flat-pack inventory
Takt and Manz hope that the “intuitive” design will help avoid the frustrations that people often encounter with self-assembly flat-pack furniture.
The Soft Chair frame is made of solid ash or oak: a light wood with beautiful texture and pattern that adds a fine and distinctive expression. Its natural variation between dark and light colours of the wood veins reflect seasonal changes when the tree was growing. We only work in FSC® certified wood to drive sustainable development. The surface is treated with natural oils and water based lacquer. This treatment allows the wood to develop a characterful patina over time, and will also enable you to easily repair damage to the surface by applying light sandpaper and a new oil treatment – again and again.
Soft Chair is designed through TAKT’s Eco System Design principles and are shipped component based as flat packs. We can pack 5 to 7 times more products in the same volume and therefore minimise CO2 emissions during transportation. Soft Chair is eco-certified and produced using wood from sustainable forests and the full supply chain is certified. It is constructed for disassembly, meaning that all componenets are replaceable and worn parts can be replaced. Comes with a five-year warranty.
We don’t service an expensive network of physical retail stores. We work directly with the best furniture workshops. When we receive your order, we dispatch the product from our central warehouse in Denmark and ship it to you directly. That is how we can put more value into the product, sell it to you at a fair price and keep you informed along the way.
We designers have a role to challenge the materials, production, processes, and people so that we can help develop and maintain modern craftsmanship.Thomas Bentzen
