Oddvin Rykken (born December 11, 1937 in Øystese Norway) is a Norwegian furniture designer, who became most famous in 1970s with his leather Ribo lounge chair. Oddvin Rykken is essentially a self-taught designer. Together with Svein Gusrud and Peter Opsvik, he formed the tribe of the so-called balance designers (‘balans-gruppen”), who stood behind the Norwegian design revolution in the 70’s, which brought out a range of models of chairs that gave the user the ability to move and ballance the body while sitting.

DUTCH / NEDERLANDS: Nieuw gestoffeerde Noorse fauteuil van Oddvin Ryken, jaren ’70. De fauteuil is kenmerkend voor de Noorse ‘Balans-gruppen’, een ontwerperscollectief, die meubelen ontwierp waar de gebruiker geheel of gedeeltelijk werd uitgedaagd om te ‘balanceren’. In deze fauteuil heeft de rugleuning een bewegelijke, ergonomische ondersteuning, zoals we nu vaak bij bureau stoelen ervaren. De fauteuil is geheel nagekeken, schoongemaakt en opnieuwe gestoffeerd in een Divini MD kavdrat stof. Opnieuw in zeer goede conditie, zo goed als nieuw.
