imm cologne Preview: Y Chair by Tom Dixon. A new silhouette, super ergonomic, hyper flexible and ultra-robust

Tom Dixon recents adventures in hotel, restaurants, bar and office design got them looking for a chair to withstand heavy use, constant knocks and the daily abuse of the professional world. But Tom Dixon also wanted a recognisable silhouette, an ergonomic shape and a modern attitude. Not too much to ask they thought. But after much fruitless searching they decided it was time to make their own. Two years of complex engineering and intense shape-making later Tom Dixon think they may have got it. The Y Chair's expressive form is injection moulded in glass-reinforced nylon which is extremely fatigue resistant - absorbing shock and load through its flexibility and tested to contract level. The shape of the Y chair is prompted by ergonomics – with lumbar support, space for the spine and a generous brace for the shoulder blades. All adding to its instantly recognisable silhouette.

The Y Chair con be seen at next imm cologne show, to be held from 13 to 19 January 2014, in a Tom Dixon space located at Hall 3.2, Booth D-034. Source: Tom Dixon Read more news related Tom Dixon published at Infurma Visit the Tom Dixon website Visit the Tom Dixon sheet at Infurma
