Project: Solliden Outdoor Performance Arena, Stockholm
Client: Skansen Open-Air Museum
Designer: Björn Dahlström
Year of completion
: 2014

The Solliden outdoor performance arena was constructed at the Skansen Open-Air Museum in 1938, and since then, has staged prime-time productions and attracted large-scale audiences. Today, the arena hosts concerts, annual music events and traditional holiday performances. Over time, Solliden has become a national symbol recognised by most Swedes.

The Solliden chair was designed specifically for Skansen and the outdoor performance arena and large events. It has the best seat comfort designed with a nice back and seat-friendly seat that can be complemented with cushions. Designing and producing new seating for the arena required a range of considerations, such as making the products maintenance-free, able to accommodate a range of body types and able to seat people of all ages. The seats are easy to assemble, remove and stack together when not required. The brief included designing a unique trolley to transport the seating to and from the performance arena.
