Furniture: Satellite chair by Richard Hutten for OFFECCT
With the means in which we work and where we work changing, Richard Hutten takes to the challenge by developing a seating piece that offers generous and comfortable seating, while also being compact and portable.
Responding to our digital lifestyles, the Dutch designer has conceived the ‘Satellite’ spinning easy chair for activity-based spaces, that encourages interaction and collaboration amongst individuals. Produced by OFFECCT, ‘Satellite’ is characterized by round, playful features.
‘Architects always draw circles to indicate where to position chairs on their floor plans. Those architect drawings are the starting point for this chair. The top view of ‘Satellite’ is a perfect circle. To me, the circle is the most elegant form: it is without direction, has no bulky sides, no beginning, no ending,‘ says Richard Hutten.
