13/10/2017 - During the last edition of London Design Festival Lammhults exhibited the chair series Penne at Designjunction. Penne was, earlier this spring, awarded with Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 for the version with legs of wooden tubes.

Penne - the world’s first chair with legs made of laminated wooden tubes was launched in October 2016. Available with a seat and back in polypropylene and the wood version in ash, walnut or oak the chair can meet a wide range of environments and areas of use. The latest addition of aluminum frame, adds the possibility of outdoor use to the chair series.

Penne has its hallmark both in innovation and aesthetics and proves the complexity of designing the simple. A well thought out, light weight chair, still strong for heavy-duty use. Designed to suit almost any environment, Penne is easily assembled with screws or bolts and, consequently, it is easy to take the chair apart and recycle or replace the components.

Designers Läufer/Keichel about Penne: “In accordance with the Lammhults design tradition, the chair was intended as an iconic piece of furniture and a real industrial product at the same time.”

Penne also comes with armrests as well as accessories like linking device and a flip-shelf storage. Seat height 46 cm.

The Penne chair is stackable, and, owing to its weight – from 3.1 kg -, it is very easy to handle. The wooden tubes/legs come in natural ash, oak or walnut as well as stained ash, allowing the user to create monochrome or colourful combinations. The new frame in aluminum comes in a wide range of powder coat colours.

Penne is the perfect match for schools, auditoriums and conferences. It will also find its natural place in the cafeteria, canteen or as a visitor’s chair in an office. Or in your home. An now with the combination of polyurethane seat and back in combination with the new aluminum frame it can aslo be placed outdoors.

Penne offers a pleasant sensation where innovation and shape meet in aesthetic balance and combines the spirit of Scandinavian chair design with the requirements of the modern contract furniture market. The designers Julia Läufer and Marcus Keichel are based in Berlin and have been working together since 2003. Focusing on sustainable design solutions, their disciplines range from furniture design and industrial design, through exhibition to corporate design for important international brands. Their work has been internationally exhibited, published and awarded.Complexity meets simplicity in Lammhults Penne chair
