orbit wood stacking chair
Building upon classic designs by Charles Eames, Arne Jacobsen and Norman Cherner, Ross Lovegrove created the sensual, organic and sculptural Orbit stacking chair that can be dressed up with wood around a dining table, or be whimsical in plastic with a bold color.
Ross Lovegrove studied design at Manchester Polytechnic and subsequently trained at the Royal College of Art in London. At frog design, he contributed to the design of the Sony Walkman and Apple computers. As an in-house designer for Knoll International in Paris, Lovegrove worked on the Alessandri office system. As a co-member of the Atelier de Nimes, along with Philippe Starck and Jean Nouvel, he acted as a design consultant to Luis Vuitton, Cacharel, Dupont and Hermes. In 1990, he created Studio X in London. Lovegrove is inspired by forms of the natural world, the possibilities of new manufacturing techniques and the ability to evoke an emotional response in users.
The Orbit stacking chair features chrome legs, gray stacking bumpers and stacks six high. The seat is offered here in either ash or zebrawood in a number of finish options but also available in plastic in three colors. Orbit is Level 1 & Greenguard certified.
