With their Aluminium Chair, designers Charles and Ray Eames lent the office chair a timeless design appearance back in the 1950s. Since then, office chairs have undergone many changes, especially since the technology to enhance sitting comfort has constantly evolved to achieve ever better seat ergonomics. Against this backdrop, the design of Trinetic has emerged as an impressive advancement providing perfect, dynamic support without the need for manual user adjustments. At first glance, this chair adopts a classic appearance reduced to the essential, showcasing a well-balanced and timeless design. Its flowing aluminium structure houses an innovative mechanism that implies a high degree of individual adjustability: with this chair, the seated person only varies the sitting height, whereas all other settings follow almost imperceptibly by themselves, providing users with a unique experience of sitting comfort. Embodying a sophisticated system, three independent pivot points combine and interact to achieve the best possible kinetic sitting position. This kind of automatic self-adjustment also offers the advantage that several different people can sit on the same chair throughout the course of a work project or when working in teams. The timeless elegance of this office chair fascinates as much as its special, highly dynamic adaptability.
