Maarten Van Severen, 2000


Maarten Van Severen's .04 office chair is distinctly different in appearance from typical task chairs used in institutional settings. At the same time, it offers advantageous ergonomic features: the flexible polyurethane shell of the .04 office chair has a comfortable sitting surface and pleasantly pliant back. Its rocking mechanism provides a smooth transition from the working to the resting position and allows moderate lateral movement. With its unobtrusive design, the .04 task chair is ideally suited to the home office.
