Chair 69 in oak is eco-labelled with the Nordic Swan. In 2007 Chair 69 was awarded with the red dot design award: product design.

The Swan is the official Nordic Ecolabel, introduced by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Nordic Ecolabel criteria for furniture stipulate low environmental impact as well as high quality. Furniture that is long-lasting is in itself an environmental advantage, because it does not have to be discarded after a short time. Furniture is also tested for sustainability and stability and must fulfil Nordic Ecolabel safety requirements.

Forsnäspriset was established in 1983 by the Swedish Institute for furniture (Möbelinstitutet) in collaboration with Forsnäs Fanérsitsfabrik Bröderna Bergqvist AB. The purpose of the award was to promote development and stimulate interest in the technique of compression moulded layer-glued wood furniture.

For 24 years the award was presented at the opening of the annual Stockholm International Furniture Fair. It became one of the most prestigious prizes in the Nordic furniture industry. The last prize was awarded in 2006. Since 2007, the prize has a new name, Nordiska designpriset för formpressade trämöbler.

Chair 69, the jury's verdict:
A shell chair with a sled base is now one of the most common designs in the furniture business. Here, the design is renewed using the tension of the legs to lock the whole construction. The seat shell design is greatly influenced by an innovative solution which is an automatic locking attachment to a springy steel underframe. Careful study of all phases of the performance of materials and of every stage of the manufacturing process, and adaptation to the compression moulding technique and its possabilities, has resulted in furniture of exceptional comfort and at a competitive price. A successful result of cooperation in an exemplary manner, between a purposeful producer and a talented designer.
Jury: Lars Bülow, Simo Heikkilä, Steinar Hindenes
