Rival is the result of the first collaboration between Artek and the German designer Konstantin Grcic. A re-interpretation of the classic wooden chair for the home or the office.

Rival is a universal chair for the home, public rooms or the office. Anchored in the Artek design tradition, Rival represents a re-interpretation of the traditional wooden chair. Thereby the designer used the favourite material of Alvar Aalto – co-founder and embossing character of the Artek design.

It looks like a common chair on the first sight, but it can easily be compared with a highly functional office chair when the functionality and the comfort have been tested. The seat under the cushioned seat hides a “knot”, a mechanism which makes the Rival seat pivotable. The comfort and functionality reinforce the intuitive usage of the pivotable chair.

The low backrest of the KG001 describes an empty room and it supports the back where it is needed to sit flexibly.

The name Rival doesn’t represents rivalry, but self-confidence. It describes the powerful history of Artek and Alvar Aalto. It doesn’t look back, but it proudly says: ‘This is how furniture is made today’. Konstantin Grcic

The Rival chair is available with legs and backrests of clear birch wood or coloured, as well as with a plastic seat of polypropylene in different colours. The seat cushion can be ordered made of leather or 3D rope-fabric.

The KG001 chair with the low backrest is also available with a high backrest as KG002.
