Gemma Chair

The Gemma Collection stands out with its optimistic elegance. Featuring a system of three veneers – oak, walnut, and colored oak and birch – along with three base types, Gemma’s gentle geometry is easily adapted to its surroundings. The softly sculptural Gemma Stitch plays off the lightweight and laminar chair, extending the collection into informal collaborative spaces. Finally, there’s Gemma Table, an easygoing tabletop with three base styles and heights, with added power integration, adaptable for relaxation or light work.

All Day Comfort

While suitable for tasking, given the appealing aesthetics and woodgrain color options for the seat shell, Gemma Task is also an attractive selection for meeting rooms and any meeting area with a requirement for some design statement. An eye-catching feature is the option to select coordinating metal powder-coat colors for the task base when choosing the new Oak colors.

Color that Reveals the Nature

Colored stains were first applied on birch wood for the Gemma chair since the barely visible grain provided the optimum surface for achieving a consistent coloring. The new Gemma oak colors rely on the more strongly figured grain of natural oak to express a range of dramatic contrasts as the graining reveals itself in very dramatic figurations not seen with natural oak veneers.

Smooth Move

The naturality of Gemma’s design means it can cross effortlessly between spaces. Whether it’s an office area with a residential vibe, a lounge where people gather for coffee and chats, or a nook that invites parties of one, Gemma is fit for any space and every occasion. This is what good design should be—varied, adaptable, and extremely flexible, from one place to the next.

Leaving A Legacy

While birch and oak are modern and fresh, walnut is more serious and sophisticated. The wood is known to be extremely durable that lasts a lifetime and only gets better with age.

Stories

New for Gemma - Task Base and Oak Colors

Renowned for the sensitive application of color to materials, Leland’s approach has always been one of a very considered approach. Instead of applying color such that it conceals the nature of the underlying material, color innovations consider color WITH materiality.
