Following a brief from Offecct Hutten set out to design an easy chair for activity based spaces. The result is Satellite, a spinning easy chair for a digital lifestyle with high comfort and round playful features.
Architects always draw circles very fast to indicate where to position chairs on their floor plans. I thought that was a nice gesture so I drew a circle and said that it should be the top view of the chair. To me the circle is the most elegant form, there are no bulky sides and it can go in all directions which means it’s never out of place, says Richard Hutten.
Satellite marks the third collaboration between Offecct and Richard Hutten, and intense technical elaborations has led to a highly innovative easy chair that is sure to enable focused work and creative meetings. Satellite sits on three legs with a side table attached which can orbit around the seating 180 degrees, making it t for left handed as well as right handed persons. The size and use of material has been scaled back without compromising the comfort and functionality of the easy chair, making it more sustainable.
– We did a big research of the size, it should look inviting, comfortable and generous, but at the same time light, compact and flexible to move around and that is a contradiction. The chair exactly arrived at that point.
