Offecct 2022: PAULINE
LITE is the result of a design brief from OFFECCT, where the assignment was to develop a stackable chair that combined pleasing aesthetics with rational function and design. “The challenge we gave Broberg & Ridderstråle was to create a chair that whilst playing with the idea of how a stackable chair usually looks like, also meets the demanding requirements from public interiors”, says Anders Englund, Design Manager, OFFECCT. The result was LITE, a stackable chair / armchair characterized by a thin profile and a wide arched back. LITE comes with a very competitive price, combining an attractive design with the stringent requirements of a stackable chair - it is easy to transport and to stack, as well as space-efficient and durable. “Stackable chairs are often narrow and characterized by a slightly anxious expression. We wanted to create a chair with an inviting wide back that nevertheless could be placed close together”, says Mats Broberg from designer duo Broberg & Ridderstråle. “The comfort has also been an important ingredient in the development process”, continues Broberg. LITE can be fitted with accessories such as an arm rest and a foldable writing tablet. It is possible to connect multiple chairs with a linking device. LITE can also be equipped with a removable upholstery for the back and seat, where the removability makes it possible to use the chair also when the upholstery is being washed.
