Paid feature by Gresham
‘Little Hecta’ has joined the Gresham portfolio as a complementary side chair with strong ties to its sister product Hecta. Responding to the current need in commercial interiors for furniture that flexes, along with the increasing popularity of playfulness in our surroundings, Little Hecta features a classic, rounded silhouette with a contemporary twist in the form of a vibrant colour palette and a luxurious finish. With the line between commercial environments becoming increasingly blurred, Little Hecta takes its form and functional cues from the comfort of the home, the finish of a high-end hospitality scheme and the durability and flexibility needed for the workplace.
“The blurring of commercial spaces is a trend that started before the pandemic, and that has rapidly accelerated since,” comments Gresham designer, Steven Parkinson. “This is something we keep firmly in mind when designing our products, such as Hecta, ensuring they work as equally well in a boardroom as they would in a café or hotel lobby.”
“The pandemic has also brought about a greater need for playfulness in interiors – not only do we want to feel comforted by our surroundings, but we’re also ready for a bit of fun with them too.
“With Little Hecta, we’ve taken onboard this need for balance across form and function. Its resulting design is entirely practical, adaptable, and flexible, while taking the opportunity to combine shape, an uplifting colour palette and statement base options that are certain to raise a smile.”
The design is available with four styles of base: wooden 4 leg; wooden pyramid; metal 4 star; metal pyramid – five metal finishes and two wooden frame finishes, and a choice of upholstery fabrics, ready for a range of settings across the workplace and hospitality sectors.
