Environmental Product Passport
The GREENGUARD label for indoor air quality recognises products that contribute to the creation of healthier indoor environments.
With the GS seal for tested safety, a state-authorised inspection institute certifies the suitability and safety of the construction and monitors production at regular intervals.
The 'Ergonomics Approved' certificate confirms the fulfilment of ergonomic requirements and testing criteria that exceed the minimum legal regulations for office swivel chairs.
Softshell Chair fulfils the ANSI/BIFMA standard X5.1-2011, thus meeting the stringent safety requirements for the US market.
An EPD – environmental product declaration – provides transparency about the environmental impacts of a product throughout its life cycle, often referred to as life cycle assessment (LCA).
The seat construction of the Softshell Chair ensures a level of comfort that is first revealed upon use: vertical ribs concealed in the back shell adapt to the user, providing freedom of movement as well as superb comfort, even for prolonged periods of sitting. The smooth contours and appealingly soft upholstery over the entire surface give the Softshell Chair its calm, cosy and inviting character.
