Product description

By using Bruno Mathsson’s original design, the task chair SAGA, we have developed a bar stool that effortlessly blends Mathsson’s sculptured forms with the visual lightness of its new base, creating the illusion of freedom from gravity. Its sleek profile and minimalistic design offers an uncluttered atmosphere, particularly in locations where several stools are grouped together. SAGA Bar is available in two fixed sizes suitable for to bar height of 110 cm and 90 cm respectively.

Concept

Back in 1974, the board of Sunnex Equipment in Sunne decided to extend its product portfolio and contacted Bruno Mathsson who had already won international fame by his revolutionizing designs and ability to design furniture conforming to the shape of the human body. In 1982, eight years and countless prototypes later, the chair was finally completed but with ergonomic features well ahead of its time. The combination of the fully adjustable back support and bowl-shaped seat and its multifaceted adjustment options allowed it to be adjusted to each user’s individual requirements, making the chair truly unique. Based on Bruno Mathsson ingenious designs, we have taken his original work to a new level by integrating our collective experiences from 25 years of working with professional users. In our new design, we have adapted the functionality to the requirements of a modern work place whilst emphasizing the characteristic lines of Bruno Mathsson. The Saga chair has no protruding parts or sharp edges and its mechanical parts have been integrated with the round and minimalistic shapes of the seat and back rest. Saga is a tribute to the work of Bruno Mathsson and a manifestation of his timeless and groundbreaking designs. Saga is an uniquely hand-made product expertly constructed by our experienced craftsmen in our factory in Sunne, Sweden.
