Fjord Range

Perfection in a broken shell

From a piece of seashell, which has been broken and smoothed by the waves, Patricia Urquiola has designed a collection of seats for both the home and public spaces.

As the name suggests, there is a strong Scandinavian influence with references to Arne Jacobsen and the inlets of northern coastlines represented in the long cut-away. Like a natural cycle where the shell is reborn through the effects of time and water, the chair becomes armchair and then stool.

Its broken form and abstract concept together become an object of design: smooth lines that support and envelop are picked out in decorative stitching in harmony with the essence of the chair’s structure.

 

Sustainable furniture

When shopping for new furniture, it helps to know what to look for to ensure you’re buying a sustainable product. According to a Nielsen survey, 63 per cent of Asia-Pacific respondents check a product’s packaging to ensure a brand is committed to positive social and environmental impact. Evidence of third-party certification is the best way to check the sustainability credentials of a product. Read more about GECA's criteria for furniture in our info sheet.
