Just as mobile devices such as smartphones and notebooks have blurred the boundaries between work and leisure, the design of today’s office environments oscillates between professional backdrops to ones with a home-like look and feel. Neutral, usually shiny surfaces, selected because they are practical and easy to clean, are complemented by softer materials with an open-pore look and more interesting haptics as well as strong colours. High-tech textiles, nano coatings and surfaces with sophisticated finishes often make these just as hard-wearing and hygienic as their counterparts, which sometimes appear rather cool.
And of course, Wilkhahn’s free-to-move chairs, which are considered ergonomic benchmarks, are no exception. Its classically stylish ON office task chair has now been launched with contour-defining stitching. The seat and backrest upholstery lend the model the sort of padded volume of chairs sat on at home and is accentuated by the contour-creating stitching. This line of stitching meandering from top to bottom gives the chair’s backrest a touch of panache and also reflects the dynamic motion options the free-to-move chair offers. Combined with the soft, felt-like Blend fabric, ON is a comfortable item of furniture that encourages movement in chic executive offices or smart start-up spaces and is equally an ergonomic companion for people working from home.
Blend is available in five colours – in addition to black and two shades of grey, it also comes in elegant beige and bold petrol blue. As a result, the office will feel like home – or when working from home nobody has to forgo the comfort and flexibility of an ergonomic office chair.
