Stressless was launched in 1971 as the first recliner designed to meet the need for movement and support the body when sitting.
The famous recliner sparked a revolution in comfort and functionality, and soon achieved international success.
Thanks to patented features that cannot be found on other chairs—from the sliding system that adapts to the slightest movement of the body, to the PlusTM system for properly supporting the neck and lower back in any position—Stressless is still known as the benchmark chair.
Furniture manufacturing delves deep into Norwegian roots. It is a skill perfected by families over time. High-quality furniture is an art that has passed from generation to generation—a long history of trials and tribulations. It is no surprise that the world’s most comfortable seats could not have been designed overnight.
Creating the most advanced comfort experience has taken decades to perfect. Born of necessity and opportunity, Sykkylven is the hub of the furniture manufacturing industry in Norway, and home to Ekornes for over 80 years.
The expansive territory of the city and its extraordinary views—as well as its serene natural beauty—were the framework for a revolution in Scandinavian design.
