As the traditions of work, home and hospitality merged over the last decade, so has the potential to challenge traditional furniture typologies. Slim is our response to this growing trend in the market. Mixing a calm simplicity with smart ergonomics, the range captures a multitude of different sitting styles and postures, including light task, with high and low backs, conference chairs with and without tilt mechanisms and two lounge chairs.

A new hybrid of light task and active conference seating allows these products to be placed and enjoyed across many different types of space and setting. The economy of the shells is further enhanced by a series of cast aluminium bases which are aerofoil like in form and seem to hover above the ground.

Slim Task has an elongated back, with thickness kept to a minimum, for a clean and minimal office space. A sensitive synchro mechanism is fitted onto each seat and back, meaning the backrest angle responds to each user’s weight to provide optimal comfort. The chairs have two different options for the arms, or can come without.

The multi-functional Slim Conference comes in three different backrest sizes: low, medium and high in order to meet the needs of various offices or settings. Seats can be fixed or have an oscillating mechanism and lever for height adjustment. The seat and backrest are produced from a single piece for minimal parts and a sleek finish.

Low and high versions of the Slim Lounge provide a comfortable sit through an uninterrupted light form. The shell is supported by a star base and fitted with an auto-return to ensure the perfect alignment between the seat and base. Lounge low is noted by its low backrest and spacious seat, whilst the Lounge High’s higher backrest provides a more enclosed seat.

Forming a comprehensive range, Slim Task, Conference and Lounge are united by their light and fluid forms, but each provides a different function suited to the various needs of workplace settings.
