Bika: A Colourful Solution to Workplace Monotony

With more and more workplaces embracing open-plan seating and hot-desk culture, the Bika chair, offers a versatile solution to flexible work spaces.

Bika: A Colourful Solution to Workplace Monotony

Designed by Ramos & Bassols together with Forma 5, the Bika Chair is a minimal, slim and easily stackable seating option that is making waves in the multi-purpose chair market.  The Bika can be stacked seven seats high, which offers an element of agility to any space. 


Barcelona-based design team David Ramos & Jordi Bassols are renowned for the way they bring together utility and aesthetic in their product designs. The clean lines and sleek form of the Bika Chair offer a contemporary approach to workplace seating. Forma 5, a leading name in the office furniture market, is committed to developing products which meet the needs of their end users, with a particular focus on balancing visual aesthetics and ergonomics.

Although the chair appears simple in structure, the Bika Chair is highly innovative because of its customisable nature. Not only is the frame of the Bika Chair strong and flexible, but it also allows users to swap in interchangeable seat shells in a variety of colours and materials, such as wood upholstering and polyamide.


While utility underpins the design of the Bika, the significance of form was not sacrificed for sake of functionality in its creation. The large number of seat shell finishes available to customise the Bika gives designers a chance at creative freedom. Designers also often appreciate that the slim frame, smooth finish and defined lines of the Bika emphasise a modern aesthetic without overriding the overall design of the room or environment in which the chair is set.

The Bika chair is available exclusively through Workspace.
