GLOBUS CHAIR
1994
plastic seat and back, stainless steel frame
32 1/2 x 18 1/2 x 20 inches, seat height 18 1/4 inches

Introduced in 1994, the Globus Chair has already become a design classic, used in restaurants and public spaces around the world. Most recently, it was installed as the seating at Santiago Calatrava’s new pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The backrest and seat are made from smooth, curving pieces of beech plywood or plastic, molded to provide secure sup- port, while the waterfall seat edge allows for comfort over long periods. The gently curved elliptical hole in the back of the Globus serves multiple purposes beyond its unique design: It allows for additional ventilation and the alleviation of back pressure, and it can be used as a handle for easy maneuvering. Attachments on the seat bottom prevent damage during stacking and plastic glides protect floors. Choose the plastic Globus Chair with stainless frame for use outdoors. Contract quality.
