Maarten Van Severen & Fabian Schwaerzler, 1999/2011
The .03 High office chair serves the growing need and desire to alternate between sitting and standing postures while working. .03 High turns this transition into a dynamic action: instead of raising or lowering the work surface, users either stand at a standing-height desk or sit down on the chair.
Micro-mechanism with rubber ball joint allows multi-directional movement. Height-adjustable.
Backrest and seat: flexible backrest with integrated leaf springs. Polyurethane integral foam seat shell with upholstered effect, self-supporting on a steel frame.
Base: five-star base with chrome-plated footrest, seat mount in die-cast aluminium. With reverse brake castors or glides.
