GENOA stacking chair
- Innovation and design by Troels Grum-Schwensen
- Former manufacturer: EH Møbler/ EH Seating
- Design: 1996 – 1997
- Publicized: 1997
GENOA is a very versatile stackable chair with an extraordinary comfort. Seat and back are made from flexible Polyurethane and the properties of this material are exploited innovatively in several ways: The internal armoring is reduced to a minimum, leaving the front-edge of the seat and the upper-edge of the back soft and forgiving for the body. The back is formed extremely three-dimensionally which – in addition to a sculptural appearance – adds an unusual good support for especially the lower back. Integrated in the seat are rails to ensure a soft and silent stacking without danger of marks in the seat beneath.
The form of the back makes row-settings look nice and the chair is easy to clean and can be used outdoors.
Later, I developed the flexible table-series; OCEAN for the chair.
