Circle, triangle and square: Verve by Geckeler Michels
20/03/2017 - Fredericia is set to unveil a new range of chairs: Verve is a versatile cup chair with an innovative and compact visual expression. The new chair stems from the drawing boards of Geckeler Michels, the design team from Berlin, and is the first cup chair in the Fredericia collection, thus opening up a whole new category of products for the company.

'The precise geometric shapes used in Verve recall the formal design idiom applied by Nanna Ditzel in her work for Fredericia in the 1990s and track back to the geometrical aspects of Borge Mogensen's rational approach to design. Verve thus encompasses Fredericia's DNA at the same time as adding a new dimension to the collection' - Geckeler Michels.

The Verve shape is based on three fundamental geometrical forms: the circle, the triangle, and the square. The circular shell consists of triangles that gradually transform into a rectangular seat, creating an unusual yet familiar shape with remarkable sculptural properties. The nature of the chair seems to change depending on the angle from which it is viewed.

Verve's compact shape imbues the chair with an unusual, organic expression that radiates a sense of space with an added dash of comfort and warmth.

Verve is available with a black seat cushion or in a fully upholstered version which makes it extremely comfortable. The seat cushion is placed loosely on the chair to make it simple to clean. With its numerous different frame types including metal skids, solid wood legs, and a swivel frame on wheels, Verve is a remarkably versatile chair suitable for use in a host of settings: from private homes and office settings to large canteens and meeting rooms.
 
Sustainable, robust and smooth as silk

Verve's plastic shell is made of 100% reusable polypropylene, which presents an elegant, tight structure to ensure a silky smooth yet remarkably durable surface. Verve is made in Denmark.
