'Verve' chair

Geckeler Michels / Frederica
£214

From the drawing boards of German studio Geckeler Michels, 'Verve' is a versatile cup chair with unique sculptural qualities. Based on three geometric forms, the sinuous nature of the chair seems to change depending on the angle from which it is viewed. 'Verve' also has an undeniable synergy with manufacturers Fredericia Furniture's design language, 'the clear geometric shapes used in 'Verve' call to mind the formal design idiom applied by Nanna Ditzel in her work for Fredericia in the 1990s, and track back to the geometrical aspects of Børge Mogensen’s rational approach to design' explain the designers.
