Design Ross Lovegrove, 1998
Silver powder-coat magnesium, polypropylene
Made in USA by Bernhardt Design
The Go stacking chair, already an icon of contemporary design, is hard to pin down. Its organic form exudes movement and growth, and its robust frame, made of magnesium, makes it comfortable both inside and out. Created by visionary Welsh designer Ross Lovegrove, the Go chair makes a bold statement that the future is now.
Ross Lovegrove studied design at Manchester Polytechnic and subsequently trained at the Royal College of Art in London. At frog design, he contributed to the design of the Sony Walkman and Apple computers. As an in-house designer for Knoll International in Paris, Lovegrove worked on the Alessandri office system. As a co-member of the Atelier de Nimes, along with Philippe Starck and Jean Nouvel, he acted as a design consultant to Luis Vuitton, Cacharel, Dupont and Hermés. In 1990, he created Studio X in London. Lovegrove is inspired by forms of the natural world, the possibilities of new manufacturing techniques and the ability to evoke an emotional response in users.
The Go chair features a silver powder-coated magnesium frame with a white polypropylene seat and stacks three high.
