Jupiter in a pink, eccentric setting

In an eccentric and playful restaurant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, you will find the bar stool Jupiter from Johanson Design based in Småland, Sweden, with pink plush and pink-lacquered legs. The restaurant is called Zalmhuis and the building dates from 1863 when it was home to a fish auction. Today, the restaurant has fish as a theme on their menu.

In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the Salmon House housed the market for the largest salmon auction in the Netherlands. The building was demolished in 1955 and rebuilt further down the road in 1999. Hospitality entrepreneurs Herman and Liselore Hell have now completely restyled and renovated the building. The grand café and its halls are restyled by Eclect Interiors, led by architect Liselore Hell. With its royal-blue velvet seating, red velvet chairs, parquet floors and enormous stained glass windows, Zalmhuis is a real hidden treasure.

The bar stool Jupiter from Johanson Design was designed by the founder Börje Johanson in 1970. The product has been in the range since then. Today, it is an obvious classic that can be seen in many different shapes, thanks to Johansson’s wide range of fabrics and RAL colours.

All steel parts and the plastic parts used are recyclable. All upholstery and foam frames are manufactured entirely CFC-free. Only water-based and hot-melt adhesives are used, free of solvents.
