Easy does it in this lounge version of the award-winning Tio Chair. As with the other seating in the line, it's versatile and stackable, fabricated in sturdy polyester powder-coated galvanized wire. And in 8 purposeful colors (with or without the option of a padded seat, available separately), Tio fits in anywhere, inside or outdoors. Chris and design partner Magnus Elebäck take outdoor-indoor furniture to another level via their Stockholm-based firm, Massproductions. The extensive Tio collection offers high-quality tables to seating, in a range of incarnations. "Our goal is to use industrial processes to create furniture which people can get excited about," says Chris. "Something that gives them pride of ownership. You can do that with a hand-crafted piece, but for us the satisfaction comes from achieving it with an industrially produced article."
“Our goal is to use industrial processes to create furniture which people can get excited about, something that gives them pride of ownership,” says Chris Martin of Stockholm-based Massproductions. “You can do that with a hand-crafted piece, but for us the satisfaction comes from achieving it with an industrially produced article.” Chris, an Englishman, and Swedish business partner Magnus Elebäck first met as independent consultants and eventually put their accumulated knowledge to work for themselves in 2009 by opening their own furniture company, Massproductions.
Within modernist design codes, they strive for a “dignified simplicity” and their emblematic Tio Chair took the prestigious Golden Chair award from the Swedish Association of Architects. Also cognizant of environmental factors, a core concept is to produce “cleverly and in volume” to emphasize sustainability as well as social ethics, Chris says. "We believe that responsible and rational mass production benefits the consumer, the factory worker and everyone in-between.”
