Seating

The average person spends about a third of their life in a sitting position: at the desk, on the telephone, in the restaurant, in the theatre, in lectures or conferences - chairs are omnipresent in our daily lives. Their function is so self-evident that only very few rooms are at all conceivable without seating. Despite its ubiquity sitting is however a variable experience and different types of sitting require different types of seats, thus a genre of furniture has been established which is characterised by the great differences in quality on offer. The smow range provides a representative overview of the history of modern, high-quality chair design: from simple, functional general purpose classics such as the Series 7 over exotic outdoor furniture such as the Tropicalia chair, or exclusive, timeless design classics as represented by works such as the Eames Lounge Chair or Barcelona Chair and onto fresh, new designs such as the Vitra Tip Ton chair. Despite the variety one premise underscores all of these high-quality armchairs, chairs or sofas: Sitting good is to feel good! All the designs on offer from smow meet the basic demand for comfortable sitting. In the case of designer sofas such as the LC2, that demand is met with a high level of luxurious comfort while with more sober, functional objects such as the Vitra ID Mesh office chair comfort is also reflected in the provision of a healthy, ergonomic seating. It is the ubiquitous seating that gives a room its special atmosphere, and with the correct object for any room concept the long-lasting and exclusive Designer chairs from smow guarantee to provide the perfect character and functionality.

IMM Cologne 2018 Compact: 118 by Sebastian Herkner for Thonet

It's probably fair to say that no object at IMM Cologne 2018 confused us quite as much as the new 118 chair by Sebastian Herkner for Thonet. Not in bad way. Just in a confused way. We know, we know, what sort of being gets confused by chairs. Us. Regularly...

Radio smow: A Chairs Playlist

As we've oft noted in these pages, not only have designers since time immemorial had a particular fascination for chairs, but society a particular predilection. Arguably the two are related and can be traced to the long, universal, cultural, political and...

The Sedentary Workers: Orchestra Musicians

Although the evidence is not, yet, conclusive, recent years have seen an increasing confidence in the theory that sitting for too long can have a negative impact on health, and that all whose job involves prolonged sitting should regularly stand, move and...

Ambiente Frankfurt 2017 Compact: Bouillon

Amongst all the fake flavours at Ambiente Frankfurt 2017 the Umami of Japanese design studio Bouillon was a genuine delight. In 1909 the Japanese chemist Kikunae Ikeda defined Umami: the fifth taste sense, the savoury, that little touch of sensory magic which...
