Introduced in 1994, the Globus Chair has already become a design classic, used in restaurants and public spaces around the world. Most recently, it was installed as the seating at Santiago Calatrava’s new pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The backrest and seat are made from smooth, curving pieces of plywood, molded to provide secure support, while the waterfall seat edge allows for comfort over long periods. The gently curved elliptical hole in the back of the Globus serves multiple purposes beyond its unique design: It allows for additional ventilation, the alleviation of back pressure and it can be used as a handle for easy maneuvering. Attachments on the seat bottom prevent damage during stacking and plastic glides protect floors. These colors are available only in sets of four of the same color. Contract quality. As the exclusive Stua retailer in the U.S., the Globus is only at DWR. Made in Spain.
