Designed by Geckeler Michels, a German design studio based in Berlin, Acme is a functional chair with a strong minimalist form made for Danish brand furniture Fredericia.
Acme is the bold and schematic design of a multi-purpose shell chair. The contrasting geometrical forms, circle, and square meet each other in a surprisingly compatible and integrative way, offering a comfortable sitting experience. Unique leg designs in harmony with the shells make an original out of each model.
The way of quoting basic geometric shapes, square and circle may remind us of constructivist art, while the way the chair’s surfaces melt into one shape reminds us of 90s electronic device design. The stackable Acme A-leg model particularly unites circle and square in the shell, as well as the shape of a triangle in the legs.
The result was the Acme collection whose durable and comfortably shaped polypropylene chairs serve various situations in both public and private spaces.
