Known for his contributions to the design of the Sony Walkman and Apple computers, as well as consulting for Louis Vuitton, it’s no wonder that Ross Lovegrove’s futurist thinking lead him to design the Sprite Collection (2004) as the essential chair. The sinuous molded wood shell gives the chair its contemporary appearance, and Lovegrove has proportioned the slim-profiled, stackable Sprite for workplaces, schools and residences, as well as public or conference seating. The Chair offers a generous seat; its back is slightly curved near the base to provide lumbar support for long-lasting comfort. A year after the Sprite was introduced, Lovegrove was honored with the World Technology Award by Time magazine and CNN. Made in U.S.A.

  • Suitable for dining rooms, cafés, and residential and educational applications.
  • Both the side and armchairs stack 8 to 10 high; rubber bumpers assure proper stacking.
  • 2004 Good Design™ Award
