Alberto Meda, 2016
The AM Chair is the combined result of engineering skill, quality design and experience. It unites ergonomic functionality with technical elegance. Dynamic armrests and a height-adjustable back give the chair an emblematic appearance, while the slender plastic frame with a fabric or mesh cover bestows a sense of lightness and grace. At the same time, the AM Chair strictly adheres to functional requirements and eschews structurally superfluous elements. The AM Chair is an economical tool for today's office needs. Its synchronised ProMotion 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 provides immediate comfort when sitting down. With numerous individual adjustment options, the AM Chair is an ideal task chair for prolonged periods of sitting at a permanent desk, but thanks to its excellent immediate comfort, it is also well suited for touchdown workstations with frequently changing users.
