Whass, the super-stackable chair for multi-purpose spaces from Actiu designed by ITEMdesignworks

Its versatility and storage capacity allows you to stack up to 30 units on the cart in the minimum possible space

Whass, the new chair by Javier Cuñado from ITEMdesignworks for Actiu is a super- stackable, multi-purpose and functional chair program intended for collaborative and training spaces, which require versatile and easily storable equipment.

With natural aesthetics, compact and sinuous lines, the structure of the Whass has been designed and manufactured for intensive use in flexible spaces. A multifunctional, lightweight and easy to move product that can be stacked easily on a cart with up to 30 units from a monoblock carcass. It can therefore be stored in the minimum possible space, a feature that makes it an ideal choice for conference halls and multi-purpose spaces.

The design of its back is another of the chair's key features, an ergonomic and close-fitting design providing perfect lumbar support, offering comfort and wellbeing. “The Whass chair design allows back support while preserving a feeling of freedom of movement. The curved back guarantees comfort while also offering a versatile and functional chair for multi-use spaces. The design ensures easy cleaning and storage and includes the Pad option with upholstered seat for extra comfort”, explains Javier Cuñado, Whass designer for ITEMDesign work studio.

Whass is defined as a comprehensive and diverse range of products, covering many different usages and spaces, starting from one single carcass, which can be combined with different structures. It thereby allows you to create very valid options both for work (the most stackable option) and contract spaces, with adjustable feet, stools and benches.

The variety and flexibility of the product (with its great structural strength, also applies to a range of finishes and upholstered with several custom-made colours) results in a family of products tailored for each space and adaptable to individual needs. All of this in a hygienic, non-toxic product, fabricated with a high degree of recyclability.
