Chicago modular seating

Design: Gunilla Allard

The easy chair Chicago, design Gunilla Allard, has been further developed into modular seating. Tables connect two or more easy chairs, however, maximum five. Gunilla has designed this modular seating specifically for the library in Linköping, Sweden, and it is now part of the Lammhults collection.

The linking tables come in two variants, high and low. It is possible to complete the high table with lighting fitting. In this case, the easy chair must be fixed to the floor.

Both table variants come in white or black laminate, or covered with leather.

The easy chair and sofa Chicago have been created in a playful way, with a wealth of detail. The seat and back are covered with semicircles, giving this piece of furniture its specific characteristics. The challenge for the designer, Gunilla Allard, and the craftsmen has been to make each semicircle as sharp, elegant and elaborated as possible.

Chicago has a frame of plywood, mounted on steel tubing, with polyurethane upholstery. The plain, thin steel tubing, in one single piece, continues between the hind legs creating a "runner" along the floor, which gives the frame its specific look.

The product can be upholstered in fabric or leather.
