Actiu presents UKA, balance between design and functionality. A chair designed by AlegreIndustrial Studio

UKA is the darling of ACTIU. Designed by AlegreIndustrial Studio, UKA is a chair created for communities, fun, functional and very visual which has found her place amongst her older sisters, other more sophisticated and technologically advanced models. It´s designer Marcelo Alegre from AlegreIndustrial Studio tells us, “At that time we were looking for a chair with the ‘balanced’ concept which we could use, install and share in any environment to use. UKA is an innovative and attractive design which fits in any space and with easy storage, due to the design which allows you to stack the chairs to occupy the least space possible.” And so we have the UKA, a versatile, light and easy to store chair (up to the height of five with protectors), flowing lines and avant guard. “Under the simplicity of the design, hides a highly technical product, achieved by its monoblock construction, along with a high resistant metal structure for intensive use” highlights Marcelo Alegre. Alegre has achieved a balanced chair in terms of design, functionality, resistance and cost, which provides without doubt its great attraction. “With UKA every detail has been taken care of. We have looked to awaken new senses of the user, pleasant to touch and sight. Ultimately, we wanted a space after a while which was entertaining, pleasant and enjoyable.” concludes the designer. UKA comes in five different models; four legs, four legs with castors, gas elevation and benches. With a colour range of nine colours ( grey, dark grey, blue, light blue, red, black, orange, pistachio and beige) A whole range of options which still makes each model more acceptable to its destination. Furthermore, its polypropylene frame with ergonomic fibre glass transpiration holes, will provide a comfortable texture giving perfect lumbar support. And as in all designs by AlegreIndustrial Studio they have taken into account that production which will have the least impact on the environment. “UKA is made from 100 % recyclable materials, has a guarantee of use which certifies a longer product life, has easy maintenance and cleaning. Furthermore, the whole production process has been designed to optimize the processes and consume the least energy possible” says Marcelo Alegre.
