Melete is all about the function of beauty. Designed by Stockholm-based design group AFTEROOM, Melete is a modern, multi-purpose chair that is grounded in timeless Swedish design sensibilities. With the versatility of several unique configurations, it has the ability to elevate almost any environment, providing elegance and a unique beauty to the design space. In addition to its base, Melete is constructed from just two sculptural pieces - the backrest and seat - that join together to create a chair whose shape is welcoming and friendly. Melete's backrest supportively curves around the user's body, opening up into two armrests that encourage the user to sit down, relax, and stay awhile. The soft curves of Melete outline the balance between functionality and aesthetics, which are combined with a functional structure that ensures comfort and durability.

The Design Process

The Melete side chair is a uniquely-shaped, multifunctional chair that provides comfort and variability in our daily lives. The chair inspires the imagination as effortlessly as it integrates space-saving efficiency in its design – function fulfilled in its most becoming form. Melete can be customized according to individual needs, highlighting the importance of the furniture's adaptability to the design environment. By being paired with different base options, whether stackable or star-shaped on casters, it evolves into a versatile chair with maximum flexibility. The soft curves outline the balance between functionality and aesthetics, gently blending into our everyday surroundings, from the home to public spaces. The chair's clean lines, mid-century modern styling and Swedish design principles will make Melete a standout piece in any room. This is Keilhauer's first collaboration with the Stockholm-based design group AFTEROOM.


Melete carries BIFMA LEVEL® 2 and SCS Global Services certification for Indoor Air Quality at the Indoor Advantage TM Gold level. It is manufactured in facilities that produce zero waste to landfill, and which offset 100% of electricity use with renewable energy credits.
