Vermund Larsen A / S (VELA) is a Danish family-owned company founded in 1935 by manufacturer Vermund Larsen, whose spirit and resourcefulness are alive and well despite his passing in 1970.
Vermund Larsen was by education an interior designer and a true entrepreneur. He was one of the pioneers of the ergonomic office chairs, and he was passionate about design, form and function. His passion was to create beautiful products, and the main theme was always that 'one should sit well'.
Today the company is owned by Stig and Gorm which is Vermund Larsen's twin sons who continue to keep a strong focus on creating beautiful and ergonomically designed chairs. The company is divided into three business areas, all with design, function and excellence as a common goal.
VELA Rehab: Special chairs, electric wheelchairs and chairs with brakes for people with disabilities
VELA Medical: Ergonomic chairs and customised chairs for hospitals and clinics
VERMUND: Design chairs
