Comfortably sit anywhere

Gigseat

Comfortably sit anywhere

Gigseat

Gigseat was conceived by entrepreneur Marianne Texmo, who after attending numerous outdoor concerts and other cultural events became fed-up with the lack of available places to sit - often having to stand for long spells because the ground was either wet or muddy. Our product designers at EGGS came on board after being approached at an embryonic stage, and since then have helped with all industrial design and refinement of the original concept.

Adapts to a wide range of terrains

Made of durable thermoplastic and available in all kinds of colours, Gigseat is an ergonomic step-like seat that allows you to comfortably sit anywhere. It’s shaped in a way that adapts to a wide range of terrains, be it steep, hilly or flat. On either end, there’s a triangular shaped hole that’s designed to house a plug-like grip to avoid any slipping or sliding around. These holes also act as a practical drinks holder - brilliant for when you’re on uneven ground and want to be hands-free.

Gigseat - comfortable seating outside

Weighing only one kilogram, Gigseat is light to carry - fitting snuggly against the contours of your back, under a rucksack.

All together now

Each seat neatly stacks on top of the other making them easy to set-up and quickly store away afterwards, and taking up far less space than other regular-type seating. In addition, Gigseat can be linked together by way of a pliable rubber connection unit. This flexibility allows for combined seating almost anywhere - perfect for large parties attending an event together.

For event mangers, Gigseat provides a convenient arrangement for anything they’re staging.

The standout attraction

Throughout the whole design process both Gigseat (the company) and EGGS gained substantial insight into the various possibilities of Gigseat by rigorously testing it out on potential users. Safety, ergonomics, logistics and aesthetics were all considered and thoroughly fine-tuned along the way. Portraying a strong brand identity, and with a distinctly modern look, Gigseat is destined to be the standout attraction at an upcoming concert or outdoor happening near you soon.

The result is a non-breakable, non-flammable lasting product with no sharp edges - an innovative solution that won best product design in two categories at the Red Dot Awards, 2015.  (Audun Sneve, Minoko, construction, Marianne Texmo, the entrepreneur and Carl Gustav Lundholm, designer, EGGS Design)
