Description of Scoop
Scoop is a family of contract market furniture designed for the overlap between private spaces and public areas. The name relates to the loader inspired scoop construction.
"Scoop is the logic output of a clear idea: The character of the series lies in the straight forward appearance – a kind of ideogram of how it works. A design identity based on high quality manufacturing and the unique feeling in use makes Scoop a classic example of aesthetic sustainability - designed to last for generations" says KiBiSi partner and Head of Design Lars Larsen
The innovative gyroscope like suspension system conveys a feeling of being carried - a free suspended feel. The Y-shaped beam creates a visual and functional overlap between seat and base.
"To be able to culturally reposition a company via product design is what we do. Repositioning a highly successful niche furniture player is a gladly received challenge. In Globe Zero 4's case it involved some extra equilibrium to avoid cookie cutter fancying. We wanted to stay clear of a home decorative cutesy product and contract business polish. We needed to establish a new middle ground that would bridge private and public spaces. Yet, this wasn't an exercise in style. We had to come up with an entirely new suspension system to build the gravity of the product inside out." Says KiBiSi partner and Creative Director Jens Martin Skibsted
Scoop merges craft and technology: The innovative technical edge increases comfort, yet maintains a clear and simple Scandinavian appearance. The chair has a tailor upholstered cast foam seat and an injection molded aluminum frame. The scoop family comprises of a conference chair, a lounge chair, a table and a bar stool in the making.
Scoop is variable with frames in polished aluminum and a black and white powder coat. The chairs are available in a range of different fabrics and upholstery qualities and in a special ice cream scoop color scheme selected for the launch collection.
