Description

Around was designed with a unique “two-chairs-in-one” ideology, an approach that offers a distinctive design expression and an opportunity to vary the aesthetic within the product line. Designed by Justus Kolberg, the Around™ task chair was conceived to achieve two different looks—an upholstered or mesh back—framed by a sleek sculptural form. Concealed innovations optimize function and comfort.

Around was inspired by the architecture of modern stadiums—open structures sheathed in a thin, organic-looking skin that creates an open volume or space. This concept translates into the Around back design—one uniform structure wrapped in either upholstery or mesh, each offering a unique visual and tactile experience. While the front view of each model is similar, the upholstered chair reveals a striking hex-back insert, while the mesh version offers a more neutral aesthetic.

The Around upholstered chair has a distinctive hex-back insert that flexes with the body to provide comfort and support. Cleverly integrated into the design, an adjustable lumbar element is standard. Each side of the lumbar element can be independently controlled for asymmetrical positioning. You can also mix and match back styles, fabrics and finishes to create a bold, contemporary look or one of classic understatement. The curated choice of an Ebony frame and base or Gris frame with polished aluminum base provides a consistent element that works with both neutral and contrasting fabric colors.
