Complexity meets simplicity in Lammhults Penne chair, designed by Läufer/Keichel.

Penne has its hallmark both in innovation and aesthetics and proves the complexity of designing the simple. A well thought out, light weight chair, still strong for heavy-duty use. Designed to suit almost any environment, Penne is easily assembled with screws or bolts and, consequently, it is easy to take the chair apart and recycle or replace the components.

Designers Läufer/Keichel about Penne: “In accordance with the Lammhults design tradition, the chair was intended as an iconic piece of furniture and a real industrial product at the same time.”

Penne also comes with armrests as well as accessories like linking device and a flip-shelf storage. Seat height 46 cm.
