|Content||Following a maxim of simplicity, some 30 years ago designers Klaus Franck and Werner Sauer created the FS-Line which became a classic example of dynamic seating. Modus was the two designers’ translation of the principle to the aesthetics of the 21st century.
• The flexible, fork-shaped backrest made of unbreakable, high efficiency plastic is covered with an exchangeable, breathable high tech fabric. Without any upholstery, the backrest adapts to the shape, posture and movement of the person sitting on it.
• With its soft and rounded front edge, the breathable, upholstered seat allows the body to relax and prevents the pelvis from tilting. Because they are easy to exchange, the covers and upholstery guarantee the chair’s useful life is virtually unlimited.
• The particularly comfortable and extremely compact automatic
synchro-adjustment with torsion springs ensures the seat and
backrest are lowered in perfect sync with your body. The stylish
swivel arms, made of high-quality die-cast aluminium, are functional and design elements in equal measure.
It is no surprise that Modus has become an international benchmark for a new generation of office chairs. Much talked-about, but still one of a kind, it has remained in a class of its own till today: dynamic seating at its best.||In today’s busy office environment we all spend long periods of time in hunched positions at our desks. Bizarrely, despite being bad for our bodies we choose to adopt a lazy posture. What the human body actually requires is frequent and a varied range of movements. Wilkhahn understands this key principal of ergonomics which is why we have developed Trimension® for the ergonomic ON chair. This unique tested feature is a patented technology for three dimensional, synchro-adjusted dynamic seating.
Trimension® doesn’t just encourage forwards, backwards and sideways movements, but the pelvis to rotate too - which is so important for the spine’s stability. Two separately moveable swing plates, just like two thighs, lie at the core of the technology. Minimal shifts in weight are already translated into movement. The position of the pivotal points and the way they work are exactly like knee and hip joints. As a result, the body’s equilibrium remains in perfect balance – no matter what posture it adopts or the way it moves. This new dimension in seating quickly becomes something that’s -taken for granted. Backache is effectively prevented and the metabolism, muscles and joints are stimulated.|
PROJEK TASK CHAIR
Projek™ is smart, simple seating designed for today’s workplace where shared workspaces are increasingly common. Projek, designed by and sold under license from Orangebox Limited, has a clean and unassuming look that allows for visual fit in varied office settings. The chair’s ease and range of adjustment will also fit the great majority of people in a dynamic and diverse workplace. Most features are standard.
Projek offers a fresh take on finishes and aesthetics. For a fresh, forward look, mix and match by selecting a finish for each chair part – mesh, seat upholstery, outer back, inner back, lumbar support and base. Innovative Shrinx mesh back upholstery undergoes a heat-shrink process that molds it to the perfectly defined tension for ideal support. The mesh back also allows air to pass through the material allowing for thermal comfort. Mesh textiles adapt to the individual body shape, providing superior back support.
|Stand-up is a stool that keeps you fit just like an exercise ball and
brings a fun approach to the serious side of life. The design was based
on the one-legged milking stool – you sit on it at a slant and it suddenly
has three legs. As a result, Stand-up encourages you to swing your hips
and let your mind wander in recreational and breakout zones, informal
meeting spaces, project and workshop environments, or lobbies and
waiting areas. It comes with a practical carry strap to take it from room
to room, or perhaps for a spell al fresco.
Stand-up is designed like a child’s toy that won’t tip over. Given a gentle
push, it swings back, but rights itself again – even from an up to 50°
angle from the vertical. Its tilted stance when not in use underscores
one of its key features: it shows that this attractive item is a dynamic
support that moves and not a static stool.||Aline’s expresses an exceptional approach in a changing working environment. The materials used to make it are reduced to the max and the range offers superb comfort, ease of use and an airy, lightweight appearance. Thanks to their stylish aesthetic, the materials used in the chairs and tables make the furniture almost fade into the background, therefore maintaining the architectural ambience even when the space contains lots of furniture. As a result, designer Andreas Störiko has created a new standard in furniture above and beyond traditional office and conference environments. Whether people are waiting around, holding conferences or discussions, having something to drink or eat, or just meeting up for a chat: the Aline furniture range looks good anywhere – and can be stowed away in no time if required.|
