The choice of premium-design conference chairs has remained virtually unchanged for decades, so Graph is a welcome newcomer. Because the graphical quality of its cutting edge shape stands out at first glance. And it's this feature that the chair owes its name to. An organic seat shell is cut through horizontally and then vertically, modified and re-assembled to produce this ingenious product. The upshot is a fascinating mix of fluid and streamlined form, closed and transparent areas, harmony and contrast.
Graph's distinctive design also offers superlative comfort - despite its slender shape. The steel seat and backrest frames feature wave springs, padding and additional cushioning. All of which adds up to upholstery in a class of its own. And what's more, without any mechanics, the leaf spring in the seat's three-point support ensures three-dimensional flexibility to keep body and mind active. So it's virtually a given that Graph has been well thought-out, right down to the last detail. That no screws are visible on the armrests. Or that frame-forms and frame surfaces have been superbly well molded and crafted. Or that the seams on the sophisticated covers precisely mirror the elegant, streamlined shape.
