Prime Time Chair for Great Dane

Great Dane brings Scandinavian subtlety to the Australian scene, and continues to do so with the Prime Time chair: an elegantly relaxing addition to your home. By Nicholas Sherwood.

Creating a trusted reputation is no mean feat, however Great Dane has shaped a successful niche in curating internationally sourced Scandinavian design. Founder and director Anton Assaad still hand selects each piece that is found inside their showroom, including Great Dane favourite the Prime Time Chair by Tom Stepp.

Stepp creates his products in his native country of Denmark, and has an impressive folio of work. After finishing his degree in 1980, many different influences led him to the Prime Time chair, with family at the forefront. The chair was formed to seat an adult and child; Stepp describes it as the support to free time, “When you get home from the whirlwind activity of the world and have a little while to enjoy sitting and chatting with your child without interruptions, now that’s prime time!”

Being designed with family in mind, Stepp’s chair demands attention without overpowering the space. The timeless, pared back aesthetics of the chair allow it to sit comfortably in most environments, including the prestigious Southern Ocean Lodge (pictured above), and sustain the creation of a dynamic, well-balanced Scandinavian home – an accurate balance of warm neutrals, reminiscent of nature, yet contrasting at the same time.
