iF DESIGN AWARD is a highly prestigious award which proves that Kinnarps definitely creates furniture at a global level. LEIA is a conference chair that is both functional and stylish. Thanks to universality, LEIA chair can be easily arranged in rooms for smaller or larger groups and in different types of situations. Hence, we believe that it perfectly fits the current differentiated working environments – says Elisabeth Slunge, Director for Global Range & Communications at Kinnarps.
LEIA chair can be used in various ways. It allows for an easy arrangement of a room where a meeting or training course are to be held as it can be stacked and transported on a wheel after the meeting ends. LEIA chairs can be also placed in canteens and cafes. Such places need a consistent style: coloring, lighting and acoustics. They should be functional, modern, easy to maintain and they should provide enough space for eating meals and social interactions. LEIA chairs are perfect in canteens and cafes because they can be placed in many different configurations around the tables of different shapes and sizes.
The main assumption of the LEIA project was the achievement of optimal combination of functionality, design and ergonomics. Johan Larsvall and Nils Löventorn, Sweden Idesign architectural studio, are responsible for this design. LEIA chair is a modern solution in the Scandinavian design. All lines are well-thought-out in order to deliver good comfort. LEIA is ergonomic and comfortable to sit on, and communicates an expressive and timeless design. LEIA is all about the details, and it is intended to be an obvious choice for modern workplaces and public environments – says Johan Larsvall, Sweden Indesign architectural studio.
