With respect for the original design, and in collaboration with Galvanitas, Satelliet has developed several new products to create a complete S-17 collection.
Because of its charm and characteristics, the authentic S-17 is a perfect t with today’s hospitality trends, and Satelliet have developed a complete collection around this classic chair.
Originally the S-17 chair was part of the school furniture collection of the Dutch manufacturer Galvanitas. Specially designed for the secondary education it became very popular as a canteen chair. The specific features of the original S-17, the ‘pair of compasses’ legs and the very sturdy steel U-profile, has been incorporated into the design of the additional table, barstool and armchair. All these items meet the original core values of Galvanitas: solid, steady and ethical.
The stackable S-17 is the driver of the collection and fits perfectly within Satelliet’s collection. The seat and back has the classic qualities of the original S-17; durable, and recognisable by the layers of compressed wood veneer.
The sheet steel frame is finished with a very special durable epoxy coating, called the Galvacoating. This gives the frame the necessary protection, and also its industrial look. With the Huck blind rivets the seat and back are assembled in the traditional way to the frame, not only giving the chair an authentic look but also a very solid, strong connection. The blind rivets offer a clean, smooth surface, with a comfortable feel that also prevents possible damage to clothing. Plastic protection glides on the metal legs not only add a design accent, but also protect any flooring.
The S-17 collection is well executed, fitting perfectly together by their shape, design and functionality in any project. The collection contains a side-chair and an armchair, a table, and, coming soon, a barstool.
