Meet this chair oozing with dynamism and comfort
Designed in a collaboration between BIG-GAME, Karimoku New Standard and Giroflex – Giroflex 150 is a reinterpretation of the classic wooden office chair.
Designed in a collaboration between Swiss industrial design studio BIG-GAME, Japanese woodworking specialists Karimoku New Standard and work seating manufacturer Giroflex – ‘Giroflex 150’ is a reinterpretation of the classic wooden office chair.
Founded by Augustin Scott de Martinville, Elric Petit and Grégoire Jeanmonod, brilliantly crafting innovative products – BIG-GAME describes its work as simple, functional and optimistic.
Functionally and aesthetically suited to both home and office work environments, as well as meeting the sustainability expectations of the present day – Giroflex 150 looks to the future while honoring the past.
Distinctly contemporary and ergonomically advanced – it’s a celebration of the beauty of natural materials.
Exclusive produced as a limited edition of 150 pieces – this eclectic piece of furniture is available in five colors with a transparent finish keeping the texture of the Japanese oak.
Intended to take things back to basics with Swiss design values – “our goal for Giroflex 150 was to create a chair with character, comfort, longevity and an heirloom quality that would age alongside its owner, while never faltering in performance” says BIG-GAME.
The wooden parts of this one-of-a-kind object are fashioned from timber from Japanese oak species by the expert woodworkers at Karimoku New Standard (KNS).
Making use of their extraordinary skill in Japanese wood joinery – KNS developed ways to skillfully transform this wood, almost considered waste, into a beautiful and durable material.
This wood is transparently sourced and then fabricated – by machine and hand – into a wooden seat, backrest, arms and foot base.
Oak components are further seamlessly held in place by a flexible steel structure and synchro motion mechanism cleverly engineered by Giroflex to fit under the seat.
