Honeycomb Chair Innovations

The pioneering honeycomb air cushion technology, used in our Honeycomb Chair range has revolutionized body weight distribution and product longevity – to give you improved long-term sitting comfort and productivity.

The result is a sleek office chair that combines unparalleled long- term sitting comfort with an ultra- durable, lightweight, low profile. It adds cross ventilation, washability and recyclability when compared to traditional seating surfaces.

Honeycomb Chair Production

TThe shape is created by a pattern of hollow cells formed from opposite sides with a wall thickness of only 2–4mm.
The raw material is first melted to be converted into the components.
The back mould is then produced in the injection moulding machine. Two halves make up the negative shape of the components. Melted plastic gets forced into the mould cavity by an hydraulic ram; the part cools and is ejected in a matter of seconds.

The finished ejected honeycomb component now forms the backs of the chairs.

The fabric for this range has been exclusively created to emulate the honeycomb structure and can be customised in various combinations.
