The new informal
by Fabian Peters | 11/1/2018
Will we still work at desks in future? That was one of the many questions asked at Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. We review the trade fair.
People differ and so does their physique: there are basket ball giants, featherweights and heavyweights . Ideally, what everybody wants is an office chair to provide an equal level of support and optimal seated comfort.
The concept of Neos therefore consistently follows the principle of "sitting without a driving licence", which has been a guiding principle at Wilkhahn for over 25 years:
* with the simplest and most intuitive operation of all adjustment functions, such as seat height, backrest height, armrest position and adjustment to accommodate the user's weight
* with synchronous adjustment of the generous, resilient back shell ensuring conformity with individual body types
* and with automatic promotion of frequent changes in posture to keep muscles, metabolism and circulation in good shape.
Two paddles and a conveniently located crank handle make it child's play for the user to adjust Neos while remaining seated. All functions are integrated in a calm, pleasant and self-explanatory form for optimal seated comfort and design appeal. This goes to show that ergonomics is invariably a question of aesthetics too.
Chair to match swivel chairs, stackable up to 5-high, for visitors, meetings, conferences and seminars; with resilient, single-section seat shell, integral stacking buffer and outer rail/grip on the backrest.
Frame in round steel tube, Ø 22 mm, thickness 3 mm, bright chromium-plated, with anti-tilt stoppers in black-grey polyamide as the standard version for carpeted floors, optionally with glides in black-grey polyamide (for soft floors) or black-grey polyurethane (for hard floors), optionally with additional felt insert (please specify when ordering); outer rail/grip in die-cast zinc, bright chromium-plated.
Seat and back
Single-section seat and back shell in resilient polypropylene, black-grey through-dyed. Seat cushion: exchangeable, with invisible screw fittings; comprising pressboard and covered, one-piece moulded polyurethane foam. Optional, exchangeable back cushion with the same features as the seat cushion. The upholstery material may be selected from the entire Wilkhahn fabric collection.
