Lite is a stackable chair and armchair designed by Broberg & Ridderstråle. Lite is the result of a design brief from Offecct, where the assignment was to develop a stackable chair that combined pleasing aesthetics with rational function and design. The result was a chair characterized by a thin profile and a wide arched back. Lite combines an attractive design with the stringent requirements of a stackable chair – it is easy to transport and to stack, as well as space-efficient and durable.
”Stackable chairs are often narrow and characterized by a slightly anxious expression. We wanted to create a chair with an inviting wide back that nevertheless could be placed close together”, says Mats Broberg from the designer duo Broberg & Ridderstråle. ”The comfort has also been an important ingredient in the development process”, continues Broberg. Lite can be fitted with accessories such as an armrest and a foldable writing tablet. It is possible to connect multiple chairs with a linking device. Lite can also be equipped with removable upholstery for the back and seat, where the removability makes it possible to use the chair also when the upholstery is being cleaned. New for 2016 is a OFFECCT Selected PatternsTM designed for Lite chair. It’s called Diamonds and is available in 12 different colors – to make every chair a chair of its own.
