SAGA is also available without back rest thus reducing its compact size even further but still offering several ergonomic advantages. The deeply contoured seat of the Saga chair distributes the body weight over a larger surface than a conventional chair, the compact design provides maximum freedom of movement for the upper body and the somewhat shorter seat allows improved circulation in the lower extremities.
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.
