“The idea is simple: to create a chair that is as light as possible. I’ve worked on projects before where, from a working environment perspective, the weight of the products has been decisive. We thought, why not take the demand for light weight very seriously and allow it to be the main driving force in the creative process? Offecct´s skilful product developer Mats Grennfalk showed me an innovative structure in super-thin but very strong steel, and then we worked from there using a slightly transparent technological textile, which we shrink onto the frame. I think we have developed a chair that is both beautiful and extremely light, with a soft, sweeping appearance. I think it’s a modern chair, very easy and convenient to use.”
