An in­no­va­tion in seat­ing de­sign

Steel­case has re­cently launched its new break­through prod­uct—silq, an in­no­va­tive chair that trans­forms the seat­ing de­sign. Through an in­no­va­tion in ma­te­ri­als sci­ence and a patent-pend­ing process, Steel­case de­sign­ers and en­gi­neers cre­ated a new high-per­for­mance poly­mer ma­te­rial that em­u­lates the qual­i­ties of car­bon fi­bre at a mass mar­ket price. This ma­te­rial, com­bined with the sen­su­ous curves of the de­sign, al­lows SILQ to re­spond to nat­u­ral move­ments of the hu­man body with­out the mech­a­nisms typ­i­cally re­quired in high-per­for­mance seat­ing de­signed for the work­place. The re­sult is a chair that be­haves more like an or­gan­ism than a ma­chine— a new archetype in of­fice seat­ing. SILQ will be avail­able in Dubai from Q3 2018.

Price: AED 3563 on­wards Avail­abil­ity: Steel­case Mid­dle East, De­sign House, Unit B01, Al Noor Street, Dubai Me­dia City
