Artek’s Rival KG002 is a multifunctional task chair that features a high back and a fun, swivelling seat. According to the designer, Konstantin Grcic, the name Rival does not stand for competition but self-confidence stemming from Artek’s and Alvar Aalto’s strong history. The splayed legs are made of one piece of solid birch and the round, padded seat has a plastic shell. The birch lamella backrest supports active, flexible seating. Grcic’s first collaboration with Artek is perfect for offices but also a great seat for homes, cafes and restaurants.

The German designer Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965) studied in Royal College of Art in London. In 1991 he founded his own company, KGID. Over the years, Grcic has had many well-known clients such as Magis, Vitra and Iittala. The cooperation with Magis lead to one of the most interesting and inventive chairs of our time, the Chair One. Chair One became a design icon and a part of the permanent collections in MoMA in New York and Center Georges Pompidou in Paris.View all products
