Solid offering: Rival chair by Artek

Artek introduced the first chair designed by Konstantin Grcic. The Rival chair makes use of a mix of solid birch for the legs and laminated birch for the arms and back, as well as in the circular geometry of the seat. The chair's swivel provides a clear purpose to the function of the chair.

Grcic designed the legs milled from one piece of solid birch. This technique was recently used in a number of chairs, resulting in the wood taking on a fluid quality more like molded plastic than timber. Grcic maintained a more conventional form that reflects the materiality of birch. The birch of the back and the arms is displayed in a saw-cut lamella.

The first incarnation of Rival is an armchair with a high and a low back version, an upholstery seat choice with a three-dimensional textile or leather upholstery, available in a range of colors.
