Alberto Meda, 2016
The AM Chair is the combined result of engineering skill, quality design and experience, uniting ergonomic functionality with technical elegance. Dynamic armrests and a height-adjustable back give the chair an emblematic appearance, while the slender plastic frame and translucent mesh cover bestow a sense of lightness and grace.
The AM Chair is an economical tool for today’s office needs. Its synchronised mechanism automatically responds to the respective user’s weight, providing optimum personalised comfort without any prior adjustments. Simple, intuitive controls can be used for additional fine-tuning. The height-adjustable backrest provides both stability and flexibility, and its ergonomic contours ensure healthy seating. The pleasantly upholstered, perfectly moulded seat is very comfortable from the moment one sits down.
With numerous individual adjustment options, the AM Chair is an ideal task chair for long sitting periods at a permanent desk, but thanks to its excellent immediate comfort, it is also well suited for touchdown workstations with frequently changing users.
