We noticed that more and more people around us had less and less esteem for office chairs. The aesthetic codes for these chairs more closely resemble an « orthopaedic » tool than a cherished work companion. Moreover, most of the adjustment devices are only used very rarely. If, on top of that, one considers that in a good many cases, office chairs frequently change users, it seemed an interesting idea to get rid of its superfluous functions.
The functional characteristics of the Lan chair are inconspicuous: the mechanism disappears under the seat and the armrests form an integral part of the backrest. Meticulous work has been carried out on the shape, the contact zones and the choice of materials in order to create a congenial and comfortable object.
The functionality of the Lan chair enables it to adapt to all morphologies, and the synchronous mechanism integrated in the seat is self-adjusting. It tailors the tension of the backrest according to the weight of the user. The backrest can be locked in three different tilt positions and its shape has been designed to allow the user maximum freedom of twisting movement.
