sting conference chair

sting conference chair

Design Gijs Papavoine, 1994
Upholstery, synthetic legs or castors
Made in Holland by Montis

Sting gives new meaning to the words 'easy seater': its seating height is that of an ordinary chair, but it simultaneously offers all the seating comfort of a luxury armchair. What sets Sting apart from most other armchairs is the fact that is combines a decidedly roomy seat with a chair of compact dimensions. Its curved lines lend it a degree of elegance previously unattainable for a fully upholstered closed armchair. Sting offers the widest possible range of applications. It is equally at home in the living room and at the dinner table, but also takes conference or boardroom duties in its stride.

Gijs Papavoine studied at the institute of technology and Eindhoven Academy for Industrial Design in the product Design department. Gijs was employed as a Product Manager at Montis until 1990. In this capacity, he was jointly responsible for Montis' design philosophy. In 1990, Gijs was promoted to dedicated designer of Montis.

Sting is available in your choice of a variety of fabrics or leathers. The base is available with synthetic black feet, castors (wheels) or self locking castors.

Gijs Papavoine

Born in 1949, Gijs graduated from both the Institute of Technology and the Industrial Design Academy in Eindhoven, after also studying at the Higher Technical Schoo. In 1976 he started his career with Montis in the Product Development department and would forever be associated with the company. He quickly ascended to the position of Product Manager and shared responsibility for Montis' design philosophy, leaving a clear mark on the company. He was promoted to head of the Montis design team in 1990 and designed models for InterArt; such as Escargot, Sumo and Kibuki.
Papavoine’s style is characterized by a clear, graceful and refined interplay of lines, with a strong sense of simplicity. His Basso Lounge Chair, part of a complete seating set for Vandersluis, was awarded the Red Dot Award in 2011.
Montis was established in 1974 and quickly focused on modern design with superior seating comfort. The Montis collection stands out with unique color combinations and with their use of various leathers. The company set itself apart from its competitors and achieves high comfort by often applying upholstery to a chair, which was often disregarded in a movement that usually stripped furniture to its essentials. Their techniques came to be regarded as distinctly Dutch.
