The chair series has a multifunctional concept and is now, in addition to steel tubing, also available with wooden legs in ash, natural or stained, for a softer and warmer feeling. The chair has already been launched with a 4-legsteel tubing and a 360 degrees with foot and pillar of aluminium. Grade with wooden legs suits public areas aswell as private homes. The concept is built around a softly shaped polypropylene shell with a molded relief pattern that follows the curves of the back and seat. The reliefs are very subtle, not affecting the seating comfort in any way but giving Grade a strong expression and a clear identity. The shell is available in three different colours and is offered with or without a fixed seat pad, all versions equally as expressive. The reliefs in the graded seat and back create a natural delimitation for the seat pad solution.

The pads, offered in 8 different colours, are slim, almost homogenous with the shell,yet thick enough to create a good comfort. The frame matches the colour of the seat shell forming a monochrome very graphic expression when powder coated but can also be more a contrasting piece with a chromed frame. Grade is offered as a chair and armchair and also with a swivel base, with or without casters. For a warmer feeling the armrest is always in polypropylene matching the seat shell´s colour. The designers say “The feature of the chair is that the chair itself is to be seen as a totality of the shape of the shell,the 5 grades in the shell, the padding and the frame.” Grade is the type of chair that works both as a solitaire and in large numbers. A whole visual entity providing function, aesthetics and comfort. At the same time a large number of chairs also form a sense of totality where the graded reliefs of the backs become a part of a vivid ensemble.Schools, restaurants, canteens, offices, at home and other environments where a clear-cut and expressive plastic chair is needed, Grade is the perfect solution.

Frame of 14 resp. 16 mm powder coated or chromium plated steel tubing. Chair also with wooden frame of natural or stained ash. Swivel base, 360°, with foot of cast aluminum and pillar with 40 mm aluminum cover pipe. Optional: casters. The armrest supper part is in polypropylene matching the color of the seat shell. Seat shell of glass fibre re-inforced polypropylene in white/grey, graphite or beige. When powder coated the frame matches the color of the seat shell.
