The Weightless Collection explores ecological principles of resource efficiency. The use of a durable, yet lightweight, recycled stainless steel frame was inspired by the revolutionary Eames’ furniture of the 1940s. The triangulated criss-cross frame also references the ubiquitous South African wirework sculptures and windmills found in the Karoo landscape.
Unlike conventional office seats, the Weightless Office chair has been pared down to be super basic, with no arms and no height adjustability, although it does come with castors. The style of this chair is ideally suited to a more informal or home office.
Ergonomic considerations have, however, not been disregarded as the shapely form and lumbar support makes it highly comfortable.
The chocolate leather seat can be upholstered in other finishes, including the client’s own material. The polished stainless steel frame can also be powder coated in various colours.
Designed for The Westin Cape Town hotel.
