Close long-term collaboration between Alexander Lervik and Johanson has resulted in numerous successful products over the years. This spring Alexander makes his mark in our product portfolio once more with the launch of SAGA.
SAGA is a family of chairs that all share the same basic design, but where a choice between five different backrests creates a variety of expressions and offers different options in terms of sitting comfort. Alexander has based his design on the classic café chair to make sure the result will work well in a wide range of settings and situations.
“On this occasion I had public spaces in mind while working on my sketches for a new chair. I devoted a little extra thought to classroom settings and how to make the chair robust enough to cope with the wear and tear in that kind of environment. Comfort, too, was a principal concern. We produced several prototypes to ensure the optimal ergonomic result. Most important of all, however, I have designed five versions of the backrest to make sure the chair has the broadest possible appeal. There is a SAGA chair for everyone,” Alexander says.
