March Lite Chair

Sir Kenneth Grange and SmithMatthias

March Lite is an extension to the original stacking chair, March, by the design duo Sir Kenneth Grange and SmithMatthias. Bearing all the hallmark simplicity of the original March chair, March Lite is visually and physically lighter, using less material due to a 2D veneer on the backrest resulting in a chair that is some 18% lighter than its predecessor, making it less carbon intensive. This simplified engineering results in a pared back chair that still retains the design details and elegance of form of the original. Available in natural or painted ash with a water-based lacquer finish and optional upholstered seat.

    March Lite is manufactured using solid ash and pressed hardwood plywood with ash veneer. All timber is FSC certified. To help keep VOC emissions to a minimum, March Lite is finished in an EU Ecolabel approved low VOC emitting, water-based lacquer. March Lite is upholstered using CertiPUR certified foam in our Somerset factory.

    March lite is dematerialised by 18% compared to the original March chair making it more resource efficient and less carbon intensive to transport. March Lite is CertiPUR certified and available with FSC certification on request.
