The Arctander Collection is the result of intensive work with — and research into — Arctanders practice and approach to design and materials, showcasing his distinct and quirky mode of expression through three different, yet synonymous pieces.
Originally introduced and produced in very limited numbers in 1944, the furniture designs of Philip Arctander have slowly but surely emerged from relative obscurity to international recognition and in 2016 Paustian relaunched his infamous Muslingestolen ("The Arctander Chair") in collaboration with Sofie Arctander Paustian and the Arctander Estate.
Today, the distinct chair with its light expression, soft padded form and rounded legs is a reference point as well as an outlier of modern Danish furniture design.

Philip Arctander (1916–1994) was a graduate of the Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, working as an independent architect from 1939–47. He was Head of Research from 1947 and, from 1968–1981, Director of the Danish Building Research Institute (SBI). He also served as an advisor to the UN in the field of construction and housing. In 1975, he was awarded the Eckersberg Medal.
