Our Seating Styles Explained

Style

Task Chairs

Essentially, this is an office chair and is also called an operator chair. One of the first innovators was Charles Darwin who put wheels on his office chair so as to more swiftly reach his specimens. It’s evolved since then to include a swivel function and controls to adjust height and position of seat and back, tilt, arm position, and the sophisticated ones will allow you to adjust seat firmness, recline position and resistance.

Most of these are cantilever chairs, in keeping with our task chair ranges to keep the look consistent. Elegant and comfortable, they make a good meeting better. And most meetings tolerable.
