Janinge by Form Us With Love for Ikea is an affordable multi-purpose chair that's durable enough for use in corporate environments while being individual enough for use in the home.
"The great idea behind the Janinge collection is the democratization of design," says Ã…sa Hederberg, product developer at IKEA. "To create a durable construction, based on the needs of both domestic and public environments."
Form Us With Love explain: "IKEA asked us to design something specific enough for a home that could withstand the international tests for public seating. To pass, we had to design for strength, durability, impact, drops, tilts and unit stability. Despite the above challenges, Janinge chairs and stools had to be the most affordable objects we had ever made."
Made from 75% polypropylene and 25% glass fiber and pigment, the collection is suitable for use outdoors, is stackable and is easy to clean. Choose from light grey, crisp white or a dash of bright yellow.
