Chair Designer is a Specifier’s Dream

One of the features we really love is that the tool is accessible from with no special software or training required. If you have access to a web browser, then you are ready to design a chair! Simply click the link on the top nav of the website. The user can then choose a base chair product from the initial menu and begin customizing.

With a chair selected, the user is prompted to browse upholstery options. And we’re not just talking about a few. As you will see in the video overview, 9to5 Seating has loads of upholstery options, ranging from single color to multi-color, and sorted by grade, pattern, color, material type, vendor and cleanability. As you click through options, the rendered image updates instantly. We were really impressed at how quickly the chair image changes – zero lag time.

As you would expect the base frame style and color are also adjustable. As if all this wasn’t enough, you can also upload your own material (COM) and render it on the chair. Got a funky idea for a new pattern? Bring it on! Want to see the new color of the year on your chair? Great idea, let’s go. Just upload and visualize it on a 9to5 Seating product.

As you design, the chair can be rotated for a perspective from any angle. Zoom levels are also really sharp for a life-like view. In addition to the powerful customization tool, the administrative functions are also impressive – making it easier for someone to specify a project and share it with a client. For example, the pricing updates in real-time as you add or remove options is a useful feature. Chair Designer also allows users to create an account where they can save multiple projects, share a design, download a PDF or send a link to a project.
