A meeting room chair, a dining chair, a visual element, and your new favorite buddy! BUD was created to provide modern environments with a chair that stands out from the traditional; a fun and youthful chair for playful concepts wherever people meet.

BUD is developed by the young design duo Petter Skogstad and Fredrik Værnes (Skogstad & Wærnes), who, after only three years of collaboration, have already garnered awards for their work. The result is an elegant and playful chair with a sleek design. However, unconventional aesthetics do not compromise comfort; BUD captures you exactly where it should.

BUD has a noticeable presence as a single chair, but the back cushion creates a sculptural and playful form when multiple chairs are placed around a table. The lowered back of BUD makes people more accessible to each other regardless of the meeting. BUD can serve as both a meeting, dining, or an informal companion!

A BUD for collaboration

The curved and oval backrest facilitates mobility and collaboration while providing excellent back support. The armrests relieve elbows during focused work with a PC on the table. Finally, one can design an open and inclusive meeting room without a wall of dominating backrests.

"BUD is minimalist yet comfortable. We wanted BUD to stand alone and also function in larger numbers without creating a wall of backrests. BUD's back allows you to move around in the chair and interact with others. During focused work, such as with a computer on the table, the armrests relieve the elbows," says designer Fredrik Wærnes.

BUD is not only unconventional in its form; it is also designed with consideration for the future. BUD has no parts that cannot be recycled and, therefore, can be disposed of 100%. Because BUD is manufactured this way, the product is an excellent example of how we work with Fora ReForm; also in the product development phase. In other words, replacing all parts of BUD in a potential future perspective will be easy. In the video below, you can see more from the production in the factory and the product development phase of Skogstad & Wærnes.

All yours, BUD
