Unnia is a new collection of chairs designed by Simon Pengelly with customisation and durability at its heart. The chair allows for the combination of different colours, finishes and upholstery to create individual and customised looks to perfectly compliment a space.
Available in twelve beautifully finished polypropylene shells as seen below with upholstered seat and back options, the combinations are limitless when creating a look and style to perfectly match your space.
The collection offers a range of bases including the classic four leg base, sled, trestle and castor bases with and without arms. These multiple option allow for a great diversity of uses in areas such as dining, conference and office.
If custom upholstery, multiple seating colours and frame shapes weren’t enough, the Unnia collection also has a selection of nine frame finishes ranging from rich chocolate, vibrant mustard or classic chrome.
