The popular Lilly and Jax collections are expanding to include a contemporary rocker base. This option from 9to5 Seating is in synch with the latest trends of workplace design where hybrid spaces are in high demand. It’s essential to worker happiness—and retention—that workplaces be outfitted for a variety of purposes. A room that serves collaboration in the morning may become a breakout room or focused workspace in the afternoon, and the Lilly and Jax rocker base option enable that kind of design flexibility. The rocker base option is also aligned with the market trend in active seating, promoting movement and engagement—proven to increase productivity.
The new model is designed to deliver motion in the Lilly and Jax collections, making it appealing to new spaces that go beyond the office. The rocker base complements both lines creating a casual, relaxed and inviting environment for guest, breakout and lounge spaces.
The rocker base is now available for the Lilly and Jax collections.
The much anticipated auto-return option has been added to the Lilly and Jax swivel models (BA20P/S). An auto-return cylinder brings the swivel back to its original front position after a person exits the lounge or side chair. A perfect complement to collaborative spaces.
9to5 Seating has been honored with three esteemed GOOD DESIGN® Awards for Jax, Sol and Mila. Granted by The Chicago Athenaeum since 1950, the prize recognizes innovative industrial, product, and graphic designs from around the world.
Founded in Chicago in 1950 by pioneers Charles and Ray Eames together with former MoMA curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN spotlights work that has “chartered new directions and pushed the envelope for competitive products in the world marketplace”.
Winning products Jax, Sol and Mila creatively address needs in the market while delivering on style. With dramatic silhouettes and a sculptural aesthetic, the Jax Collection is a complete lounge line with high-back, mid-back and side models to create a cohesive look office-wide. Task chair Sol features active pivot-back technology, engineered to support a range of working postures for users on cell phones, tablets or laptops. Mila enables easy ergonomic adjustment, with a mechanism that automatically adapts to each user’s weight, hidden in a contoured aluminum frame that encircles the seat and back.
“9to5 Seating is honored to be granted not one but three prestigious GOOD DESIGN Awards this year,” said Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating. “We are just as committed to design and innovation as we are to making it accessible to a wide audience.”
