Massproductions’ design manager Chris Martin wanted to realize an idea for a visible steel frame, which, like a skeleton, creates the structure and carries the other parts of the body. This led to the design and production of our new launch – the Jump Easy Chair.
Jump is a neat easy chair with a seat floating freely in a slim steel frame. The steel frame elegantly connects the chair’s four elements – armrests, backrest, and seat. The simple construction and assembly enable a removable upholstery, which can be washed or replaced, for an extra dimension of increased service life. The visible steel frame is softened by the rounded armrests in wood, and the upholstered seat and backrest.
Jump combines modern and traditional production methods. The steel frame’s production is fast, precise, and controllable, while the tactile armrest in FSC-certified wood is manufactured with more traditional wood craftsmanship.
