Life around the table changed for good
Long gone are the days when meals were the sole or primary activity taking place around the dining table. Lifestyle changes, smaller urban dwellings and tectonic shifts in our work lives call for spaces that are also fit for focused work, creative play and hours of socialising. Different activities demanding different things from our bodies.
So how come our dining chairs are still designed just for eating —and for sitting completely still? Humans aren’t static, and healthy bodies are constantly in motion. And why have we come to accept that the price we pay for a beautiful chair is the absence of ergonomics and long-time comfort?
Life around the table has changed for good. So should our chairs. Designed in collaboration between Varier and Snøhetta, Social® combines Nordic simplicity and design aesthetics with innovative mobility features never before seen in a dining chair.
