Orbit Dining Chair (2023)
Made by Bernhardt Design
The sinuous and organic Orbit Dining Chair extends the boundaries of technology, craftsmanship, and innovation. Orbit’s shell is available in ash or zebrawood veneer in various painted or natural wood finishes. Orbit is also available in several plastic colors. It features a chrome base and is stackable up to six chairs, or ten chairs with a stacking cart. A soft elastomeric pad conceals the base connection and protects the chair when stacked. This new generation of the plywood chair displays a leaf-like thinness and true three-dimensional quality formerly possible only with plastics. Orbit’s shell has the elegant appearance of a floating petal with a rigid structural spine that extends outward toward delicate edges. Its strength is derived from the central core which provides support and flex in the back.
The designer of the Orbit Dining Chair, Ross Lovegrove, is a recipient several international awards, and has been extensively published and exhibited internationally in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum in NY, Axis Centre in Japan, Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Design Museum in London, where in 1993 he curated the first Permanent Collection.
