Helinox secured its third ISPO Award in three years, with its latest piece of portable outdoor furniture, the Swivel Chair. Winner of the outdoor products (tents and recreation) category, the Swivel Chair is a lightweight and packable chair and combines DAC aluminium alloy technology with tough and breathable fabrics.
The Helinox Swivel Chair is the first truly portable 360 degrees swivel chair. At its core is a cleverly designed and engineered hub around which the frame can be quickly assembled, thanks to the single corded pole structure. The frame is made out of high strength aluminium in the unique DAC alloy TH72M, which offers a lower weight than conventional aluminium. The seat is made out of a durable and easy to clean fabric, with breathable mesh sides. The chair packs down into the space of a two litre water bottle and weighs only 1.2kg, yet has a load capacity of 120kg (265lb).
Geor Nicolaas of Helinox Europe saod: “We looked at all of the other outdoor swivel chairs on the market and they were either really heavy or had a huge pack size. Using the techniques and materials that helped us create the Helinox Chair One and Ground Chair, we have created a much lighter and genuinely portable alternative.
“We are delighted that the ISPO Awards jury has recognised the great innovation and very clever product design and engineering that has gone into the Swivel Chair.”
