BIFMA Compliant

 

9to5 Seating is proud to announce that our chairs have been approved for BIFMA Compliant. BIFMA Compliant is an industry-wide registry of furniture products that conform to BIFMA safety and durability standards. Compliant provides clarity to the market by differentiating products that meet established industry standards.

With an array of options available on the market today and recognizing that individuals and organizations are now outfitting home office environments, BIFMA seeks to help all consumers make confident furniture buying decisions. The registry is a resource for both specifiers and buyers to quickly identify quality products that comply with safety and durability standards.

The new BIFMA Compliant program complements the existing LEVEL Sustainability program and further establishes BIFMA as the resource for the furniture industry.  Both registries run on an ecomedes platform designed to optimize product purchasing.

BIFMA Compliant 9to5 Seating Chairs:

The remaining 9to5 Seating chairs are scheduled to be BIFMA Compliant by end of 2021.

 

New Leather Card

 

9to5 Seating is excited to announce an accessible new leather card with high-quality, top grain selections from Europe. This card features a variety of leathers, grades L3 to L5, from entry-level to premium quality. Highlands from 9to5 Seating comes in black for broad appeal while a selection from Green Hides includes new pattern Vulcano in addition to existing Sierra and Lena offerings. All patterns are bleach-cleanable—ideal for today’s market. The new card complements 9to5 Seating’s broad textile program of carded, graded-in and COM offerings.

The new leather card reflects the ever-changing market with fresh colors, textures and grains for ultimate customization. The Sierra and Lena patterns have expanded to include new, on-trend colors. And newcomer Vulcano integrates color and texture, combining distressed leather with the durability of modern tanning in a greater variety of neutral colors.

With bleach cleanability becoming a must in today’s market, the new leather card offers the security and confidence consumers are looking for. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the World Health Organization recommend using a bleach solution to disinfect against today’s healthcare challenges. Highlands, Sierra and Vulcano use a 10:1 water-to-bleach solution while Lena takes a 48:1 water-to-bleach solution.

Introducing Clary

9to5 Seating has launched the Clary side chair to address the evolving needs of today’s flexible workplace. Clary is designed to be versatile and coordinate easily with existing workplace designs. It is available in 24 bleach-cleanable colors for the mesh back version or thousands of textiles options for the upholstered back. The frame comes in silver and black with black and gray plastic and is available with or without arms. The many design options were created to allow Clary to be seamlessly integrated into private offices, huddle rooms, break and multipurpose rooms.

9to5 Seating developed Clary as a “universal side chair”, made to complement its task chairs including Neo, Neo Lite, Vault, Theory and Aria. Clary can be customized to complete the look of a workspace—or work as standalone seating for a collaborative space.

Clary’s wall-saver design means your surfaces are protected and glides and casters work double duty for mobility and floor protection. Clary stacks five on the floor or dolly for quick rearranging and storage.

“Clary is built for easy coordination,” says Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “Today, work happens in every corner of the office, and versatility isn’t a perk. It’s a prerequisite. We created Clary to meet that seating need.”

Clary is listed at $340. It is BIFMA LEVEL 1 and GREENGUARD Gold certified and warranted to 300 lbs.
