At Orgatec in Cologne we presented the new chair series Acme and Verve created by Berlin based design studio Geckeler Michels.

In this video you can get a closer look at the chairs and meet the designers sharing their thoughts behind the design. The shape of both chairs is based on three fundamental geometrical forms: the circle, the triangle and the square. Despite the stringent aesthetics and the contrast between the forms the design is surprisingly harmonious imbuing each model with a truly distinctive appearance.

Designers' comments
“The clear geometric shapes in Acme and 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. The two chairs thus encompass Fredericia’s DNA, while at the same time adding a new dimension to the collection” – Geckeler Michels.

Acme and Verve are available from April 2017.
