ELENA is a chair with simple lines and an attractive vision.
The ELENA family reflects a clearly a different design as far as forms and functionality are concerned.
A wide choice of versions: skid base, four legs, armchair and swivel chair, static or wheeled base.
The chairs can be joined together. The comfort of the whole range of upholstered finish. All these elements make ELENA the idealsolution for a variety of situations.
The skid-base chair is pure elegance. The soft lines of its chrome structure perfectly match those of the seat. The whole range uses the same white polypropylene seat. The different frames are made of steel in chrome finish.
The Elena chair war in 2007 the Gold Winner of the Best NEOCON in USA and it was the finalist of the DELTA premiums in Spain the same year.
The four-legged chair and the skid-base chairs are stackable. The four-legged chair is the sturdiest one. Its resistance is unrivalled and able to stand any use. The seat is made of white polypropylene and the structure is chrome steel. All glides are made of white polypropylene. The four-legged chairs is also available for outdoor use, the structure is being treated with zinc and metal zed paint.
The four-legged chair can be joined to others by means of a joining piece, which is totally invisible since it is placed beneath the seat. The shape of the chair itself permits to create continuous bench, optimising the space with a joining piece, this piece is made of injected polyamide. Thanks to its design, this piece is separate from the chair, it can be manually installed very easily, no tool needed, and allows a fast coupling-uncoupling of the chairs.
ELENA is also available with a writing arm designed as a work surface which can be folded to the side for the convenience of the user and in accordance with anti-panic regulations
(it folds away automatically in emergency situations). The writing arm is made of graphite-coloured nylon and its support of stainless steel. This version is specifically designed for public spaces such as training rooms, conference rooms or auditoria. The chair with table is stackable up to five high.
ELENA four-legged chair is possible in two versions: with and without armrests. The chair with armrests maintains the elegance and purity of the rest of the range. This version is stackable as well.
The ELENA range is completed by the swivel chairs whose seats in increase the feeling of lightness. They are available with a static base or with wheels. The office chair with wheels base are perfect for the work environments. The office chair with fixed base in chrome is adjustable height.
The chair is most comfortable in its upholstered version, available in six different colours: black, grey, red, bordeaux, blue and brown. The seat is only upholstered frontally and that contrast with the white colour of the polypropylene gives the chair its characteristic two-colours appearance. The upholstery is made of a last-generation polypropylene textile, very perspirable and environment friendly, available in six colours. It is riveted to the front of the seat and glued to the top of the backrest.
