LEC was designed byÂ Jouko Jarvisalo, the chief designer andÂ artisticÂ director ofÂ Mobel. Mobel‘s well-knownÂ Kolo Armchair blown me away with its minimalismÂ and steelÂ structural statement sometime ago, and now I love this tilted auditorium chair set even more. The frame epoxy coated steel, and the seat and backrest is made with plywood. The plywood parts can also be layered with laminate or fabric. The stiff and strong construction requires only 2 legs for a group of 4-5 seats and offers more freedom to plan technical installations and facilitates cleaning. Foldable writing tablet can be optionally installed.
Founded in 1996, Mobel designs and markets furniture primarily for the contract market. Design philosophy of the collection embodies the views of the designer without compromises. Mobel furniture represents clean-cut and refined design heritage.
Company’s Chief Designer and Artistic Director is Interior Designer Jouko JÃ¤rvisalo. The range includes also products designed by Interior Designer Pentti Hakala, Designers Vesa Damski, Teemu JÃ¤rvi and Heikki Ruoho. The collection has received several internationally recognized design awards over the years.
Mobel acts as marketing company and Huonekalutehdas Korhonen Oy as producer of the collection. Founded in 1910, HKT Korhonen has successfully combined high quality tradition of handicraft and technology. Intense co-operation between the companies and strong emphasis on product development creates excellent prerequisites for advanced technical solutions. The first ever Pro Finnish Design award to be awarded for a piece of furniture was received in 1999 by Mobel for the Kova chair designed by Jouko JÃ¤rvisalo.
