Designed as a round compact tub chair for collaborative spaces within offices, healthcare and leisure areas. Bobbin was an early adoptor to the changes that were soon to influence the place of work, the growth in soft seating to provide casual and relaxed breakout furniture.
The original design was mounted on a simple pedestal base and rotating mechanism, it circular form and movement reflecting that of a spool, with a back and arm rim that suggested the function of a Bobbin. The upholstered part is constructed from injection moulded foam over a tubular frame. A variety of base frames have been added over the years to increase uses and functions. Updated in 2016, Bobbin continues to be a commercial success after 15 years in the market.
