Increasingly, furniture in general, and design office chairs in particular, are conceived as furniture that, far from being solely functional, also acquire a decorative status.
Maybe you are considering equipping your company with furniture of these characteristics. If so, then we recommend you continue reading the article, because we are going to propose various questions that will help you evaluate if these chairs, which sometimes come to represent a new form of art, can fit into your facilities.
- Are these designer office chairs useful and practical?
If the chairs you have purchased are aesthetically attractive or modern but cannot be comfortable enough, it is useless. There is no justification for equipping your offices with this type of furniture, or at least the reason is not of sufficient weight.
Surely on more than one occasion it has happened to you that you have sat or tasted a piece of furniture that is very modern and avant-garde but not functional and even less comfortable. We must never forget that the first and last purpose of the chair is to be comfortable.
A user and guest can forget and forgive an aesthetic not very modern, but always remember an uncomfortable chair and this will influence the perception you have of the branding of your company.
- Does the furniture fit with the aesthetics of your company?
Perhaps you will think that even the most avant-garde chair does not justify breaking with the classic or conservative aesthetics of your offices. Well here we must point out that more and more what is sought in the design of the new facilities is the differential. And that can be achieved by adding functional but modern chairs that slightly overflow the conservative line or add that touch of color or daring.
- Does the furniture add or contribute something to the set?
It is very linked with the above. And it refers to the fact that the introduction of that element has to have a justified reason. The chair must provide something, whether it has to do with the aesthetics or the functionality of the furniture.
- Do I feel identified with the chair that I just included in my project?
The visitor, client, user and the worker must connect with this piece of furniture. We cannot conceive this chair as an isolated element within the office; it must connect with your business philosophy.
If neither the workers nor the guests make use of this object or do not give it any merit, then surely you should rethink to remove it.
At this point, it is very likely that you are considering including a chair of these characteristics in your office, but you do not know which models you can choose. Well, it was time to put the theory into practice.
We are going to show you 3 examples that we believe respond well to these premises:
This incredible chair was designed by Verner Panton, back in 1967. Today is considered, although it is strange to read, as one of the great classics of modern chairs.
And it is that its shape in S, its dynamic design and its simple architecture make the impact and influence of this chair reaches the design of the current furniture.
Although it is simple and minimalist, Panton is the result of a professional and personal career on the part of its creator. With this model you will not be able to equip any space, since the office will have to respond to certain aesthetic and philosophical characteristics of the company.
The chair Eames Plastic Chair is made of plastic and was created by Charles & Ray Eames about the year 1950.
The seat and backrest make up a single polypropylene shell, which you can buy with armrests, while the 4-leg structure that serves as base can vary depending on the model: varnished maple or steel.
Almost with total security this model will sound you having previously seen equipping other spaces, since it is the most versatile example of the 3 that we mentioned in this post that can serve to decorate various spaces.
It was the first tubular chair on the market. Created by Marcel Breuer, it began to be commercialized around the year 1927.
What we like most about this model is that, despite being a very old (but modern) chair, it still manages to be innovative and current. It is formal, elegant and modern, but without being too limited when it comes to equipping spaces.
We would use it to equip companies of very different profiles and in numerous spaces.
These 3 designer chairs are our favorite to use in equipment projects, but the truth and, as you surely know, is that there are many other options. Go ahead and tell us in the comments which are your favorite design office chairs to equip your company!
