Product description

Grade chairs are available with four-legged frames in steel tubing or molded wood, steel tubing sled base as well as swivel base. An optional felt seat pad in a number of colors adds a soft feeling. Grade continues its design standards as a single standalone design, or as a seating solution for the largest conference, with or without the optional seat pad. A barstool version has also been added to the range, using the standard Grade seat shell. And now a fully upholstered Grade chair. The concept is built around a softly shaped polypropylene shell with a molded relief pattern that follows the curves of the back and seat. The reliefs are very subtle, not affecting the seating comfort in any way but giving Grade a strong expression and a clear identity.

Peter Hiort-Lorenzen och Johannes Foersom say ” Grade is the type of chair that works both as a solitaire and in large numbers. A whole visual entity providing function, aesthetics and comfort. At the same time a large number of chairs also form a sense of totality where the graded reliefs of the backs become a part of a vivid ensemble. For schools, restaurants, canteens, offices, at home and in other environments where a clear-cut and expressive chair is needed, Grade is the perfect solution.

Concept

The chair series has a multifunctional concept and is now, in addition to steel tubing, also available with woodenlegs in ash, natural or stained, for a softer and warmer feeling. The chair has already been launched with a 4-legsteel tubing and a 360 degrees with foot and pillar of aluminium. Grade with wooden legs suits public areas aswell as private homes. The concept is built around a softly shaped polypropylene shell with a molded relief pattern that follows the curvesof the back and seat. The reliefs are very subtle, not affecting the seating comfort in any way but giving Grade astrong expression and a clear identity. The shell is available in three different colours and is offered with or withouta fixed seat pad, all versions equally as expressive. The reliefs in the graded seat and back create a natural delimitationfor the seat pad solution. The pads, offered in 8 different colours, are slim, almost homogenous with the shell,yet thick enough to create a good comfort. The frame matches the colour of the seat shell forming a monochromevery graphic expression when powder coated but can also be more a contrasting piece with a chromed frame. Grade is offered as a chair and armchair and also with a swivel base, with or without casters. For a warmer feelingthe armrest is always in polypropylene matching the seat shell´s colour. The designers say “The feature of the chair is that the chair itself is to be seen as a totality of the shape of the shell,the 5 grades in the shell, the padding and the frame.” Grade is the type of chair that works both as a solitaire andin large numbers.
