Lightness and comfort are qualities that don’t always go together, but they are elegantly combined in Spark, a lounger that’s just as pleasing by the replace at home as in a public lounge area. The minimal steel construction is softened by leather arm rests, upholstery clad in canvas and wooden runners, making an exquisitely slender, contemporary chair with an unmistakeable resemblance to the Swedish “spark”, a traditional kicksled.
It looks sturdy because it is sturdy. Ferric is a multifunctional table, built for hard work, creative conferences and delightful dinners. In fact, you can join segments together for a five meter long table, providing ample room for all those activities at once. The wooden top rests on a steel frame carefully optimized for stability and sustainability – a well-balanced solution evoking the industrial design of Jean Prouvé.

You will find us at Clerkenwell Design Week, Design Fields, stand SF9a.

SandellSandberg choose Massproductions Albert stool for Frantzén/Lindebergs homely new pub The Flying Elk in Gamla Stan (Old Town) in Stockholm.

â€œI saw a rack of freshly baked loaves in the bakery close to our office. There was something about the risen bread against the metal wires that was instantly appealing and I wanted to transfer that sculptural idea to a sofa. Bread represents comfort, life and stability â€“ perfect sentiments to include in a sofa!â€ - Chris Martin
