The Kinesit office chair received the top award at the prestigious design competition awards ceremony held at Bmw Welt in Munich last Friday, February 26th.
The jury, made up of 52 design experts, explained their enthusiastic reception of Kinesit as follows: “This office chair has a thoroughly original design. In the sector of office furniture, design also aims to create a sense of motivation and enjoyment in performing one’s tasks at work. This chair, with its modern and sleek silhouette, meets this requirement in a completely original way. All commands are hidden inside the chair thus lending unprecedented lightweight and clean aesthetics to the product.”
The jury gathered in Hamburg in January and deliberated on the winners of the iF DESIGN AWARD 2015 over the course of three days. Only 75 out of 4,783 participants were awarded the top prize, the iF Gold Award. Winning products are displayed at the iF design exhibition held in HafenCity, the district built in the old harbor area of Hamburg. The list of winners can be consulted using the dedicated app and online on the IF design exhibition web site.
Kinesit is one hundred-percent compliant with the regulatory requirements of the sector. The built-in Self-Tensioning Weight Response Mechanism, designed to automatically respond to the weight and pressure of the user, allows a synchronized movement, while the height adjustment commands are hidden underneath the seat. Nothing breaks the seamless design of its elegant silhouette. Kinesit chair is available in three backrest heights and a range of bases, with or without armrests. A wide selection of upholstery fabrics and leathers offers great scope for customization, and makes Kinesit an extremely versatile chair suitable for a variety of tasks and spaces.
Catifa Sensit, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina and presented at the 2014 Orgatec fair, received the iF Design Award 2015 for the “Product Design” category.
Catifa Sensit offers the comfort of a traditional office task chair without the bulk of visible technology. An integrated mechanism in the back of the chair synchronizes movement, allowing it to seamlessly incline, relieving pressure on the lower back and offering full ergonomic support. The Catifa Sensit Chair is an enduring contemporary silhouette re-imagined for both home and work environments. Soft yet supportive, Catifa Sensit is available in three backrest heights and with or without upholstered or aluminum armrests making its design harmonious with diverse interior environments.
