Product description text block Thatsit

Thatsit is a statement piece; it consists of bold, contrasting shapes that exude movement. It's classic, artful design supports your body like no other chair. From the concave back rest to the rounded runners, the Thatsit creates balance in all postures. Its dynamic positioning offers a seamless transition that makes constant motion basically undetectable. It defines any space with modern elegance and fits in brilliantly in a work environment.

Norwegian industrial designer, Peter Opsvik, is known as the foremost designer behind ergonomic seating. Drawing inspiration from Hans Christian Mengshoel’s balans® concept, Opsvik created unconventional seating solutions that emphasize movement and variation. This freedom to move defines his award-winning chairs, whether for the office, children or for leisure. Opsvik works together with seven colleagues in his Oslo-based studio, where they focus on product design as a means for solving real-life problems.

  • Materials

    Thatsit is made from top quality beech ply wood from European forests. The ply wood is treated through an iterative molding process where several veneer layers are combined and glued. Through the application of combined heat and pressure, the layers are given their characteristic shape, making our Thatsit stand out from the crowd. All wooden parts are flexible and strong, ensuring a sitting experience that is never static. For a beautiful finish, our ply wood is covered with ash top veneer, manually sanded and coated with water-based, non-toxic lacquers.
