Skybar is an armchair designed for lobbies and waiting rooms – with a simple dialect of form that is immediately pleasing to the eye. It is at once both massive and graceful and very comfortable to sit in too.
Designer Geir Sætveit describes the birth of the Skybar chair: “It all started with a shape that merged opposing qualities. I wanted to make a chair that was both thick and thin, to draw the viewer’s attention to that precise contrast. I made the first sketches when I was still a student and they were really quick ones too. It took much longer to finalise the design and at least five prototypes were made before actual production started. The effort was worth it though as I think the outcome is really great.”
Skybar has featured in leading projects around the globe but also right here in Brisbane, Australia (See Projects page)
