.04 beam seating

Maarten Van Severen, 2000
The great comfort of .04 is first revealed upon use. The flexible seat shell made of sturdy integral foam provides optimal support, assisted by the integrated leaf springs in the backrest. Mounted on cross beams, the .04 bench units are ideally suited to serve as modular furniture in waiting areas.

.04
Maarten Van Severen's .04 chair is distinctly different in appearance from typical task chairs used in conventional office settings. Yet it offers advantageous ergonomic features: the chair's flexible integral foam shell has a comfortable sitting surface and pleasantly pliant back, and the micro-mechanism with a rubber ball joint allows gentle multi-directional movement. With its unobtrusive design, the .04 task chair is ideally suited to studio environments and home offices.
