Sting O30A
Sting is an exceptionally stackable chair in aluminium and stainless steel. Sting is linkable and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Sting is very comfortable with a slight movement and is usable in many different environments; indoors, outdoors, cafés, canteens, conference centres and more. Sting is also available as armchair. Sting natural anodised is eco-labelled with the Nordic Swan and is 100 % recyclable. Use our design tool to configure your own Sting!

Sting is the result of an extremely manufacturing-orientated design process. The result is a common chair in an unusual way. The seat and backrest of Sting is made of aluminium that is extruded in lengths up to 60 metres long. The lengths are later sliced into pieces and anodised; becoming seats and backs of chairs. As far as we know, in 2003 when we presented Sting, it was the first chair on the market where this technique was used. The seat and the backrest section are jointed together almost invisibly. No screws are needed, the stainless steel legs fixates the frame and locks the construction.
