Let the compas be your guide

The perfect seating option for any setting; the Compas chair by Patrick Norguet for Kristalia achieves a clean and balanced design that is incredibly functional.

Designed primarily on the principle of fluidity and comfort, the light and minimal design of the chair allows it to blend seamlessly with its surroundings. Whether viewed from the front, back or above, what stands out is a harmonious form with overall symmetry that is clean and pleasing to the eye.

Kristalia is constantly pushing the boundaries in the materials and technologies they use throughout their range and this design is no different. To make the Compas a reality, a special form of plastic was used for the body of the chair. Resistant to impact, wear and tear, and even outside weather conditions, this material has combined with a sturdy aluminium frame to create a beautiful piece that combines good looks with incredible durability.


The frame can be finished in a shiny chrome layer or in a black nickel polish, giving the whole piece a muted yet chic and sophisticated appearance, ideal for more exclusive settings.


Because of its high durability, this stackable plastic chair can be stacked up to 5 chairs high and is suitable for the outdoors, making it perfect for use in public contexts as well, such as hotels, restaurants, bars as well as use within the interior of a private home.
