Tilting, flexing, swivelling – the conference chair range S 95 is equipped with new functions



This is the way to make meetings fun: at Orgatec 2016, Thonet presents the sporty and elegant conference chair S 95 with a new return mechanism and an especially developed tilt mechanism, which provides the striking chair with a comfortable cantilever effect. The new return mechanism of the S 95 swivel chair versions ensures that the seat will automatically return to its original position after the user gets up. Thanks to the different frame versions, the chair range covers a broad spectrum of uses and ensures continuity and clarity in any type of conference room. The options for individualisation are another plus of this range.

360-degree furniture with sophisticated details

All versions of the conference chair family S 95 are characterised by the flowing-ergonomic form and striking details. The design focuses on the open backrest, which makes the chair an eye catcher even from the back – similar to the upholstery and the swivel leg cross, references to contemporary
automobile design can be discerned. The model becomes unique due to the inlays in the four-leg aluminium swivel cross for which different materials can be selected. The chair’s metal parts –
especially the connector between seat and backrest and the four-leg cross – are made of bent aluminium and are thus reminiscent of traditional crafts. All dynamically shaped upholstery parts guarantee a high level of comfort despite their filigree design. This comfort has now even been increased due to the integrated tilt mechanism, for which the proven wear-free technology of the torsion rod is used, enabling fatigue-free sitting.

Versatile yet unmistakable

Different versions enable the S 95 to find a place in all kinds of environments. Different versions that vary in their frames, cover fabrics or even small details can be optimally combined around a table. As a cantilever chair, the S 95 ensures a relaxed seating position – with the rectangular tube frame produced with a stainless steel look, it optimally fits with the table range S 8000. Two backrest heights are available for the cantilever and the swivel chair versions with four-leg cross frame. Optional  castors provide even more flexibility for the swivel chair version. The frame elements are available either chrome-plated, in polished aluminium, stainless steel look or powder-coated in seven different colours. A matching version for Thonet’s conference table ranges can always be found. Fabric or leather covers are available for the upholstery. The armrests are also available in leather or solid wood.
