The changing face of the office
A chair that works formally and ergonomically requires an ingenious idea, high seating comfort and excellent workmanship – all characteristics of the new Alvo design by Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub. With its delicate plastic shell, into which a luxuriant cushion with differently filled chambers is inserted as a cushion for seat, back and arm surfaces, Alvo not only renews the image of the chair as „occasional“ furniture: it is a modern eye-catcher – and uniquely comfortable. For its significant design, COR uses high-quality plastic with gently shimmering surfaces; the desired elasticity could not have been achieved with conventional moulded wood shells. „We then continued to experiment with the lateral recesses in order to achieve a pleasant flexibility in the back area,“ explains Jürgen Laub. Alvo (the association with alvus, Latin for ‚mother‘s lap‘, suggests itself) conveys a feeling of security. Even during longer round-table discussions, its owner should be able to sit softly „bedded“ and completely relaxed.
Four frame variants allow flexible use in the living/dining area or in multifunctional zones, including
the (home) office. The choice of materials for the substructure includes wire and metal frames, various
types of wood with conical legs and a plate base on which the white or black seat shell appears to float.
