Made up of stools and chairs, the Mixu range is designed to be versatile and fit any context.
“Quiet in form and near-endless in possibilities, Mixu is a sustainable and versatile collection of chairs and stools that can be completely customised to suit the needs of any context, environment, or desire,” said Arper.
Each chair is made from three parts: a base, seat and backrest. Users can pick the colour and finishes, tailoring Gensler’s design to suit them.
“This three-part system can be personalised with myriad colour and texture combinations to create a silhouette whose softly rounded geometric curves, and minimal gesture creates a perfect canvas for material expression,” said Arper.
The product’s base is made from 70 per cent recycled steel, finished with a powder-based coat free from volatile organic compounds.
“Seats can be combined with backrest options in a plastic, fabric, or leather and four-leg bases in either metal or FSC certified wood. A stool option with the same size seat as the chair offers generous comfort for hospitality or contract use,” said Arper.
“The Mixu system is available in a range of material components for almost limitless design expressions. Playful or sophisticated, demure or vibrant, polished or plush, it’s all in the selection.”
“The Mixu system was designed with sustainability in mind and can be shipped disassembled to reduce its volume and carbon footprint.”
The seat and backrest upholsteries – including the polyurethane foam padding – are attached to the chair without the need for staples or glue, allowing users to replace them if needed and extending the product’s lifespan.
“Mixu can be completely disassembled for correct disposal, making this dynamic collection a materially conscious system throughout its life cycle,” explained Arper.
