Konstantin Grcic’s Rival Chair represents a fresh approach to the wooden chair. The legs are milled from one piece of solid birch, taking on a fluid quality more similar to moulded plastic than timber. The backrest of KG002 provides support for long periods of sitting while the low back of KG001 offers a high degree of flexibility, defining the sitter's range of movements. Both arm and backrests are made of form-pressed birch lamella.
Rival is Artek’s first chair with a swivel function; the upholstered seat, available in a choice of textiles and colours, conceals a clever aluminium “knot” that rests in a polypropylene “socket,” allowing a circular movement. The graceful lines of the Rival Chair mean it swivels effortlessly from office to dining table.
