Chap (2021) is adaptable and versatile. The quality of its design lies in its generic appearance and universal applications, which are also the reasons why it cannot be limited to a specific function.
Chap looks familiar at first sight: its kinship with small four-legged stools or side tables is immediately evident. The quality of such designs lies in their generic appearance and universal applications, which is why they are never restricted to a specific function. Chap is particularly adaptable and flexible: in a home setting it serves as a practical footstool, as a side table or as a seating option when there are extra guests. And because it is lightweight and stackable, Chap can be taken along to workshops, meetings and other types of gatherings in the office and stored away again just as quickly.
Its stable leg construction provides a sturdy support for the high-lipped Chap Tray. One or several of these containers can be positioned and stacked below the seat of the stool for storing the user's phone, cables, papers and other utensils.

Konstantin Grcic, 2021
Konstantin Grcic was trained as a cabinetmaker at Parnham College in Dorset before studying industrial design at the Royal College of Art in London. In 1991 he set up his own practice, Konstantin Grcic Design. The Vitra Design Museum devoted a monographic exhibition to Grcic and his work in 2014.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
