The Crown armchair and easy chair established a dignified and elegant sitting experience, regardless of the location in which they were placed. They owned a light, open back design with fully upholstered side panels which a sense of volume was given despite the chair’s low weight. The chairs were made of relatively flat parts, which when joined together allowed a strong form which was greater than their sum parts. The backrest was sat on top of the armrests and looked like unsupported. The connection is in fact very strong and this innovation increased to the visual playfulness of the chairs. A heavy duty woolen stretch textile, which kept a minimum, upholstered the Crown armchair and easy chair. Beautiful forms were enhanced.
In just two years Massproductions determined itself as one of the most exciting furniture companies in Europe. Their first collection contained the “Tio” chair, which was generally allowed to be a new modern classic. This denoted their 3rd presentation at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and noticed the collection expanding into upholstered products, under the creative direction of designer Chris Martin – an Englishman who created his home in Stockholm. Together with fellow designer and co-owner Magnus Elebäck, Massproductions delivered elegant, rational and functional furniture pieces to grace our built environments.
Stockholm 2011: designer Chris Martin of Swedish company Massproductions launched an upholstered chair at Stockholm Furniture Fair this month. Called Crown, the armchair consisted of a backrest that appeared to perch on its slender arms. An easy chair was also provided, upholstered in the same stretchy woolen fabric to minimize seams. Stockholm Furniture Fair was placed 8-12 February 2011.
