Ascent Collection, Brad Ascalon for Mitab Sweden


We are very excited to share with you a sneak peak of our latest collaboration with the Swedish brand Mitab, our Ascent seating collection. Launching at the upcoming Stockholm Furniture Fair (February 7-11), Ascent is a unique modular seating system with a big character and humble attitude. The idea for the project was to rethink and simplify the design of lobby and airport seating in order to establish a completely new visual language for the category.

The interplay of organic and monolithic geometries is the defining visual characteristic of the collection, as well as many of Ascalon's designs. The combination of these opposing dynamics of lightness and stability brings an unexpected whimsy and poetry to its many environments, while giving its user the perfect balance of comfort and support.

Ascent was also designed to anticipate the needs of the environment and its users. The base incorporates both standard power and USB charging while simultaneously serving as a bare table surface for one's food, newspaper or other personal belongings.

The collection will initially be available in two sizes with a maximum of three or four seats, and it can be customized to fit in any public space, large or small. As each seat is upholstered and attached to the base individually, designers and architects are given the opportunity to experiment with seating configurations and color combinations to best accommodate the needs of their contract interior projects.
