Product information

Designed for all the demands of today- and every day to come, the Back-up chair has your back, responding to the ebb and flow of today’s work and life, and built to last a lifetime.  

Meet the latest additions to the Back-up family: we added a few more bases to increase the versatility in use for a variety of spaces. So here’s the 4-star base without arm. Even the chair itself is versatile: take a 360˚ spin in a sec.

The Back-up swivel chair is innovative in its clean lines and straightforward with its minimal use of materials. Specifically, the formed steel tube frame with a powder coat finish which is made to last, and the fitted seat and backrest that are highly customizable in a selection of Kvadrat fabrics. It is a charismatic piece, in which minimal design and structural shapes come together in an elegant and durable chair that provides lumbar support, while the simple aesthetic adapts to any environment.
