IN / Office chair


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Trimension®, patented 3D kinematics, has taught sitting to walk. The design concept of the new office chair IN integrates three perfectly coordinated innovative features to deliver an exceptional experience. Swiveling arms move separately, directly fostering an enormous range of dynamic motions. The seat and back, made using advanced 2K technology, maintains the body’s center of gravity. The backrest cover fashioned in 3D Formstrick, familiar from sports footwear development, provides support like a second skin. The athletic design reveals the manufacturing methods and hightech materials.
