RED DOT WINNER: Satellite by Richard Hutten for Offecct

This year’s Red Dot Design Award winners have been announced and Swedish manufacturer Offecct has picked up one of the prestigious awards for Richard Hutten’s ‘Satellite’ easy chair.


Described as ‘an easy chair for active spaces’, the standard Satellite chair features a fabric or leather upholstered shell and chromed swivel frame with return, with attached rotating side table in anthracite lacquered MDF.


Further customising options are available for the frame in black, silver or white lacquer and table top in
leather, available in black, brown and natural.


"Architects always draw circles very fast to indicate where to position chairs on their floor plans. I thought that was a nice gesture so I drew a circle and said that it should be the top view of the chair. To me the circle is the most elegant form, there are no bulky sides and it can go in all directions which means it's never out of place", says Richard Hutten.

Offect has seen a busy start to 2016, and will be exhibiting new products designed by Jasper Morrison, Christophe Pillet, David Trubridge, Monica Förster, Jin Kuramoto, Hallgeir Homstvedt, Mattias Stenberg abd Cecilie Manz at the upcoming Salone di Mobile in Milan.
