Kalamazoo, MI – August 29, 2018 – Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-design LED lighting, site furniture, and accessories introduces the 21 chair, designed by Modello USA. “The 21 chair is an example of Landscape Forms’ commitment to giving landscape architects and architects selections in styles and price points” says Landscape Forms President Richard Heriford. “Our design leadership is again demonstrated in a chair with international appeal and surprising affordability.”
The name for this chair comes from its generous 21-inch-wide seat, which gives the chair a relaxed look and a comfortable sit that supports multiple postures. “The 21 chair is about relaxing and taking it easy,” says Landscape Forms Vice President of Design and Marketing Kirt Martin. “The subtle curves of the seat and back, and the rounded frame comfortably support people sitting in sideways, upright, and relaxed postures. The design is playful and offers landscape architects options for customizing with color.”
The 21 chair seems at home indoors, but it is designed and made for outdoor spaces and outdoor elements. It comes with arms angled for natural support, or without arms, and can be stacked up to four chairs high. The chair is finished in a single color, but the frame and slats can be ordered in different colors upon request. Chairs are finished with proprietary Pangard II® HAPS, VOC, and lead-free polyester powdercoat that resists chipping, peeling, and fading.
