GROOVY

 

GROOVY is a family of chairs with its own distinct & integrated concept.

The chair is an elegant one-piece shell design. The shell is made of polypropylene and designed using sophisticated geometry that distributes the material of the shell in varying thicknesses to achieve dynamic movement in the back and good lumbar support. The material chosen and the way it is used ensure an ergonomically good sitting posture and a robustness that enabled the chair to pass the strictest strength test – ‘tough public use’.

The textured surface and the grooves on the upper side of the shell ensure that the user does not slide forward on the chair and therefore have to use their legs to counteract this movement, resulting in stressed leg muscles. GROOVY does not only offer elegant and appealing aesthetics – it has been crafted with the highest priority on comfort and ergonomics.

The colour palette contains both understated classic colours like deep blue, grey, black and white and as a contrast to these colours, the chairs are also available in red and yellow.

The armrests are available with a comfortable rubber coated pad.

The GROOVY chair suspension brackets can be used for all versions and can be mounted on GROOVY tables as well as other tables.

GROOVY tables come with beautiful polished aluminium corners.

“Creativity is the variety of impressions, which are combined with memories and associations, and filtered through the individual view,” says designer Hans Thyge Raunkjær (* 1957). After training at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen, he worked as a stage designer of a theatre group. He then lived for seven years in Milan, where he also worked as a freelancer for the George Sowden studios. In 1991 he founded his own design studio.

Hans Thyge & Co. works with furniture-, concept- and product design. In addition, the company has a division dealing with 3D graphics, interior design, exhibition design and communications design.

For Labofa Hans Thyge designed the REEF Collection as well as the SHARK and GROOVY programmes – and in cooperation with Hans Sandgren Jakobsen – the COBRA products.
