Dash Brings Cool Flex

Innovative features make Dash an option for a variety of spaces

With the rise in popularity of flexible workspaces, 9to5 Seating is launching Dash, a multi-purpose chair with designed-in ergonomics to serve a variety of users during long or multi-shift workdays. Dash was created to serve the changing needs of the marketplace. Today’s collaborative workspaces demand seating that can support needs that shift over the day.

Collaborative workspaces demand a different kind of seating beyond the traditional multi-purpose model. The new Dash answers that need because it is engineered to support exactly that. It is a single solution for the growing change-over needs of today’s work environment.

Dash features design elements that are not common in multi-purpose chairs. The flex back supports wellbeing with multiple flex zones for comfort for every user. The waterfall edge allows for healthy circulation, and the perforated back delivers breathability.

Dash is customizable so that it can fit various use and spacing needs. Bases include four-leg or sled in two frame finishes or with glides or casters. Models also include bar or task stools, with arms or without. Dash is customizable in all-plastic in 12 colors or with an upholstered seat.

Dash models are backed by 9to5 Seating’s limited lifetime warranty and have achieved BIFMA LEVEL 1 and GREENGUARD GOLD certifications.  Dash chairs are built with 60% recycled material.

Planting Trees Together

9to5 Seating is partnering with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that focuses on reforestation around the globe by planting one tree for every dollar donated. With a long-time dedication to sustainability, 9to5 Seating will focus its donation and efforts on reforestation in California, where the company’s headquarters is located and where deadly wildfires have impacted numerous communities in recent years.

One Tree Planted teams with individuals and organizations in more than 43 countries including The Jane Goodall Institute, to plant trees and restore nature and biodiversity. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation. They also raise awareness about the importance of trees and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment. The organization has doubled the number of trees it has planted since 2014 and enables its partners to choose a region of focus for its efforts.

“We’ve seen the devastating impact of forest fires too often in our home state of California, which is why it was so important to us to partner with One Tree Planted,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “We’re committed to sustainability at every opportunity, and teaming with this impressive organization will enable us to make an even greater impact.”

9to5 Seating is committed to sustainable and environmentally responsible business practices. This global perspective is endorsed and executed throughout every aspect of our corporate culture, and within our warehousing, manufacturing and office facilities. We are proud to demonstrate our commitment by offering GREENGUARD GOLD Certified products, participating in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Waste Wise Program, achieving LEED® NC Gold Certification for our corporate headquarters facility and achieving LEVEL®, BIFMA’s sustainability certification program for furniture.

New Products and New Look at NeoCon

9to5 Seating will be returning to NeoCon in person this year. The seating leader plans to unveil a new showroom that reflects the approach to their award-winning product design: inspiring design, versatile, flexible and comfortable.

9to5 Seating’s new showroom was created by acclaimed Chicago design firm Kuchar Design Studio with the goal of creating a clean, “gallery” feel that can be embellished and modified over time. With curved platforms and rugs in natural shapes, the space aims to be both modern and inviting, in synch with the brand’s seating.

The new space uniquely expresses 9to5 Seating’s design direction, where products can be used for different purposes throughout the course of a day. According to Sarah Kuchar, owner and creative director of Kuchar Design Studio, “the flow of color through the space – a nod to the brand’s name – was inspired by daylight from morning to night, moving from warm tones to cool and back to warm just as the sun rises and sets.” Vignettes with tinted glass backdrops create a sense of the changing light of a day. Throughout the showroom, this motif of morning-to-night serves as a backdrop to task, conference and lounge seating.

“We’re excited to unveil our new showroom and showcase some versatile design touches this year in the return to NeoCon,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “The new space allows us to highlight the design-centric offerings including the HÅG Capisco, Vox and Dash multi-purpose series, new wood leg bases options for the Lilly and Jax collections and the award-winning Sol, Mila and Jax lounge series.”

Visit 9to5 Seating at NeoCon in suite 10-95 to see the new showroom and product updates. Also, mark your calendars and come party in the new showroom Monday, Oct 4, 4 p.m. RSVP with your 9to5 Seating Representative.

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.

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.
