Japanese and Scandinavian design meet in Massproductions Icha series, an elegant furniture family with a light yet sturdy construction.
The Icha chair was introduced for the first-time during Stockholm Design Week 2017 and was well received, picking up Elle Decorations “Chair of the Year” award the following year. The Chair is characterized by its round section steam bent armrests which provide high comfort while the narrow backrest helps to create a transparent chair from all angles.
The Icha Chair is a complex wooden chair in solid, layer-glued and steam bent wood, a combination that makes it dependent on three different production techniques. The chair is constructed to cope with the challenges of public environments and meet the requirements of “Möbelfakta”, the Swedish quality standard for furniture. In connection to its Möbelfakta certification, the Icha Chair passed quality testing to meet the requirements for use in public spaces. This involved a test of 100,000 cycles, with loads of 100kg on the seat and 30kg on the backrest.
A graceful collection in which Japanese and Scandinavian furniture traditions meet. All products share the same slender yet strong construction. Icha Icha is named after the Japanese restaurant in Stockholm the stool was originally designed for.
