Stack It Up
The deck is definitely stacked in favor of VS America's Stakki.
A slick little chair with a weighty portfolio of benefits, Stakki, designed by Martin Ballendat, may just be the best thing to happen to educational environments since the alphabet.
The chair is inspired in its simplicity. Made of injection-molded plastic, Stakki is a "single part
with no mixture of materials." This means rapid manufacture, streamlined production, and easy recycling: "In fact, our production surpluses go right back around into new chairs."
And of course, Stakki stacks. It weighs a meager nine pounds and stacks 10 high, in a stable and perfectly vertical configuration courtesy of its innate nesting. The chair's concave legs and stepped glides help see to that.
But Stakki isn't just convenient and sustainable—it's also exceptionally versatile. The three-legged construction offers users considerable maneuverability, under and around tables, within nooks, up close and personal with desks of all sizes, laptop tables, and even music stands.
And Stakki supports a variety of sitting styles, including front-facing, side-straddle, and backwards—each helping to achieve the aim of "the best position is the next position."
As implied by the images herein, Stakki serves a student demographic, but that doesn't belie its versatility: the chair works equally well in workspaces, hospitality, and public-seating environments. It's also great for outdoor use.
