Furniture takes to the slopes on ski day

Posted On

Stressless® chairs from five decades were some of the items of furniture which saw the light of day at Strandafjellet at the NM i Møbelaking event on 19 March.

Once a year, representatives from the furniture trade meet for an unceremonious race in which chairs, sofas, wardrobes, beds, mattresses and tables are converted into toboggans for the occasion. Ekornes entered this year with 5 contraptions in the chair category and one in the bed category.  

This year’s Norgesmesterskap i Møbelaking event was the eighth in succession, and many spectators had gathered to cheer on the brave competitors.  In addition to the prize for the fastest entry in each category, also awarded were the creativity prize, the prize for the biggest flop, the spectator prize, the best in show prize and the best supporter prize.
