Innovation in furniture has become more difficult as more manufacturers enter an ever increasingly crowded marketplace. But Swedish manufacturer Lammhults has designed a new stackable chair with a difference.
The issue with stacking type chairs has always been striking the balance between an appealing aesthetic and keeping the product weight low enough so they can be easily moved and stacked. Too often the lightest chairs have had limited design appeal, but the best looking ones have been too heavy to be practical.
The new Penne chair from Lammhults may have just solved this dilemma. The Penne comes with an innovative hollow timber veneer leg design (known as ‘LignoTUBE’), the first of its type on the market. This means that, owing to its reduced weight (only 3.8kg) it is very easy to handle but looks modern and appealing.
The wooden tubes/legs come in ash – natural or stained, as well as in oak or walnut, allowing the user to create monochrome or colourful combinations. The seat and back come in polypropylene in a choice of grey, black or white finishes. This is backed by Lammhults commitment to recycling, ensuring the Penne is easily unassembled for recycling at the end of it’s lifespan.
The design is bold, colourful and can be considered a real piece of industrial design that stands out from the crowd. Equally at home in a dining room, café or conference area this could just be one of the star commercial furniture products for 2017.
