perlutz / Chair


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

This four-legged chair is ideal for open meeting and cafeteria spaces. Creating a space that encourages collaboration between workers does not only raise productivity, but these chairs also create a space where staff can sit down and relax. Flowing lines and lightweight design, while functional, also enhance the feeling of spaciousness. The thin flexible shell makes leaning back comfortable and also improves stackability. The design, which incorporates a backrest and seat that provide full body support, ensures superior seating comfort. Available in five different colors, it suits not just formal, but also casual spaces.
