The FIBER ARMCHAIR has been designed to balance maximum comfort with minimum space.
The chair has been produced from an innovative bio-composite material that includes 25% wood fibres. From a distance, the shell appears to be normal smooth plastic, however, when viewed up close the tiny pieces of the wooden fibres become apparent, giving the chair a whole new character. With the addition of four different bases, FIBER has flourished into a fully-fledged family of 39 chairs, confident of finding the ideal style to suit the individual home, office or other public setting.
Shell consists of a wood and plastic composition with 25% wood fibers, 70% PP (polyproplen) and 5% coloured PP. Sled base is made from powder coated steel. Textile upholstery from Kvadrat and leather upholstery from Camo leathers.
Remove non-greasy stains by carefully dabbing with a lint-free cloth or sponge wrung out in clean warm water. If necessary, clean by dabbing with soapy water with a little dish soap. Finally, dab the surface with clean water. See kvadrat.dk for further cleaning and maintainance intructions for your chosen textile. For leather upholsetry versions: Clean the leather with a dry cloth regularly. Treat the leather at least four times a year using only special leather treatment products for anilin leather.

ISKOS-BERLIN ON THEIR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, technology of objects and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!”
ISKOS-BERLIN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“Time passes, life is going on. Wild flowers of new nordic muutos are growing on the roof of the “museums building of Scandinavian design heritage”. It is more than natural – it is life-affirming.”
