Flaunting a new feel for life

"A comet is a celestial body orbiting the sun. About once per decade, a visible bright comet passes in the sky and we can see something unusual and exciting." With inspiration from the wonders of our solar system, Lammhults launches Comet, a new chair designed by Gunilla Allard. Comet is simple in its expression and has a clear and distinct form in which the seat and back are a gently shaped into a harmonious whole. Comet has a molded shell with a slim silhouette. The chair is fully upholstered, with stitched end seams creating a stylistic detail. Comfort, simplicity, and modernity were the key aspects of the design and development process. The soft rounded shape of the chair's shell gives the user a feeling of embrace. Comet is a chair with many options, available with high or low back, with or without armrests. The armrests are a thin, flat loop of steel around the back. Typical of Gunilla Allard's designs, the armrests have an exquisite leather detail to rest your arm on. Comet is available with two base options: a four-leg swivel base with glides, and a five-star swivel base with casters. Both bases combine tubing of different diameter, with thicker tubing at floor level for the subtle suggestion of strength. Both frames are made of either powder coated or chromium plated steel tubing. Comet provides great comfort, suitable for long or short meetings and conferences. The many different variations make it a great choice for hotels, offices and lounge areas.
