STOKKE PEEL - it was the peel of an orange that gave the idea to the designer Olav Eldøy to create this chair. The form is reminiscent of an orange peel, and so to also is its function. It protects and embraces and protects its user in a natural way. It furthermore stimulates its user to experience a new and creative sitting adventure. The design gives support to our body and movement to our mind.
Like all other Stokke chairs, STOKKE PEEL is created to give movement and variation whilst seated. It embodies one of the core values of Stokke; To supply visually appealing sitting solutions that satisfy every person’s innate need for movement and variation whilst seated.
The new and patent pending movement concept allows the user to adjust the chair into different positions, simply through small movements and the shifting of your body weight, relaxation can be reached in a creative way. The user is guaranteed always to find the best individual position – for reading, resting and television, or even just to dream.
The half-open back cushion and the height adjustable neck support give freedom of movement. The scale form is just one part, so that the sitting angel between seat and back is fixed. This allows the user to sit or recline without sliding forwards, and an optimal sitting position will always be encouraged. Both Small as well as larger persons can fully enjoy the possibilities the chair has to offer.
The movement concept is a double spring system which works in perfect co-ordination. Whilst sitting in the central position you can move without having the chair tilt forwards or further backwards. Yet if you actively shift your body weight and lean further backwards, you gradually activate the second part of the spring system. The co-ordinated action of both springs allows you smooth shifting between positions.
A separate footrest both complements and completes the Stokke Peel. When the feet are placed on the footrest it gives the user several optimal relaxation positions. The blood flows freely through the body thus allowing you to remain extremely comfortable, even in the most reclined sitting position.
