Viva

by David Regestam

Viva consists of a moulded back, seat and armrests, including cushions, which hang elegantly from a solid wooden frame of oak or beech.

“I have been longing for a chair like this. With Viva, I wanted to focus on comfort and sustainability, all packaged in a beautiful form. The aim was to create something unique that you will want to use for a long time to come,” says designer David Regestam, interior architect at Wingårdhs.

With the same dimensions as an armchair, but the comfort of an easy chair, it is as suitable around a dining table as being a reading or lounge chair. Viva is constructed to facilitate disassembly.

Components are simple to separate and reupholstering is easy to further increase the chair’s long lifespan. Viva is environmentally friendly.  The moulded body consists of recycled textile felt. The long-lasting padding gives Viva durability over time. Naturally, consideration has been given to transportation; the chair ships in two easy-to-assemble sections.

“You can get inspired and make your own version of the chair or select one of the versions already available. Viva suits most environments and price ranges,” says David Regestam.

Viva was previewed at Milan Design Week 2019 and aroused great interest. Now the finishing touches have been completed. The details have been refined and contribute to a more rational manufacturing process at the Gärsnäs factory in Österlen.

It is available in beech or oak, with a range of surface treatments and coverings: from natural leather and suede to mixed fabrics.

Design by David Regestam

David Regestam is interior designer at Wingårdhs and in addition to the table TAK, he has also designed the pillar table Kolonn for Gärsnäs. Regestam gets inspired when there is a gap and a product missing on the market. He is often surprised by the amount of furniture that is produced and how little of it fits in and is really liked.
