The work of Sam Hecht and Kim Colin, known together as Industrial Facility, is characterised by its precise form and aesthetics derived from functionality. The British-American design duo carefully considers an object’s context and its relevance to modern life in their designs. Their new S 220 chair range reflects Thonet’s formal, material and technical heritage with an ultra-modern take on the company’s line of moulded plywood furniture: the design draws on the familiar lines of the iconic 214 bentwood chair and reinvents it as a stackable, material-efficient moulded plywood model that can be used anywhere. The ergonomic seat shell is fixed to a light tubular steel frame. The S 220 is also available with optional bentwood armrests in a colour similar to the shell and will be launched at the Orgatec office furniture trade show.
