Sprite Chair by Knoll
designed by Ross Lovegrove
The Sprite Chair represents a revolution in materials and visual dynamic. An elegantly curved line that comprises both the back and seat of the chair, the Sprite recalls unity, and with it's various exotic wood finishes, the environment. It's no mistake: The Sprite chair was designed to be environmentally responsive, safe, and sustainable. The chair pulls off the difficult feat of being original yet classic, stylish and loud, edgy and commonplace. Designed by Ross Lovegrove in 2004, the Sprite has become one of the most recognizable chairs in the fine furniture industry. The chairs are stackable and lightweight, so they're perfect for work environments, cafeterias, and most congregations.
