A combined seat & back support for the legendary designer chair ”Fora form City”. A true classic having been on the market for over 50 years.
The designer chair ”City” was launched back in 1954,and originally the seat & back support was one of the world’s first designs done in laminated wood in oak, beech and birch. The designer Mr Öivind Iversen got the inspiration for the shape and form of the chair from a beautiful woman. As finally a decision was made to launch a project to expand the product range to also consist of “City-chairs” in plastics in a numerous numbers of colours – initially tests were made in polypropylene with long-glass fibers. It was found that the PP-LGF material had some disadvantages with glass fibers protruding at the surface resulting in an insufficient surface appearance. Also the delivery time of this kind of material was found to be unacceptably long. We were able to introduce a material that fulfilled the demands for the general mechanical properties, gave an acceptable surface aspect, being possible to colour in the nine different colour tones – now on the market, in combination with an interesting price picture & correct delivery times.
We can today proudly state that Fora-form choose a material from our POLYfill HC-family for the evolution of their 50 years old classic – that was originally launched 1954 with a new launch of the plastic versions in 2010.
