Division Twelve introduces the latest member of the family: Bitsi

After a successful 2021 full of exciting launches, award-winning design and showroom openings, Division Twelve is expanding its funky family of colorful bent steel furniture to include a brand new sibling: Bitsi. Featuring minimal, clean lines that make a major impact when combined with Division Twelve’s big, bold color palette, Bitsi is a seat that can’t be beat.

Designed by Los Angeles-based design firm EARL, Bitsi is an itsy-bitsy chair for the teeny- weeniest of spaces – whether you’re working with 500 or five square feet, it’s all about compact comfort. Bitsi’s seat has some serious cushion atop its sleek, small metal frame, which includes an upholstered, curved backrest that was designed to provide ultra-comfy back support. Bitsi’s small footprint and cylindrical, cushioned back rest make it the sweetest seat for office lunchrooms, libraries, hospitality spaces and more.

Not just designed to be itsy, Bitsi was also created with durability and long-lasting comfort in mind. Division Twelve president Mike Keilhauer loved the chair’s functional, standout features and offered to collaborate with EARL to bring their design to a wider commercial market.

“Bitsi is both contemporary and classic,” says Amber Earl. “The chair’s clean lines combined with its pops of color and pillow top will not just make it stand out, but also stand the test of time.”

“That’s very important to us when it comes to our pieces,” adds Chris Earl. “We want them to stand the test of time, both in design and functionality.”

Bitsi is available in café, bar stool and counter stool height and is intended for indoor use. With its unique personality, Bitsi can be customized to complement any design concept and is available in Division Twelve’s 20+ finish options which is expanded each year to include the Pantone® Color of the Year, including 2022 Color of the Year “Very Peri.” Bitsi’s seats and back rests are available in an upholstered cushion style.
