Geometrical forms: Verve chair series by Geckeler Michels for Fredericia

The Verve’s shape is based on three geometrical forms: the circle, triangle and square.

Fredericia has launched Verve, a cup chair from the drawing boards of Geckeler Michels, the design team from Berlin, and is the first cup chair in the Fredericia collection.

The Verve’s shape is based on three geometrical forms: the circle, triangle and square. The circular shell actually consists of triangles that gradually transform into a rectangular seat, creating a surprising yet familiar shape with sculptural properties. The nature of the chair seems to change depending on the angle from which it is viewed.

Verve is available with a black seat cushion or in a fully upholstered version. The seat cushion is placed loose on the chair to make it simple to clean. The chair has numerous frame types, including metal skids, four legs, and a swivel frame on wheels. Verve’s plastic shell is made of 100 percent reusable polypropylene. Verve is made in Denmark.
