Bringing personality to the table

The Keyn Chair Group, designed by the London firm forpeople, is a collection of meeting and side chairs for collaborative spaces with a sliding one-piece seat-and-back shell that offers immediate comfort.

Observations of meetings showed that people continuously shift in their seats, leaning forward or stretching back, typically up to 57 times an hour. People expect movement in their task chair, so it made perfect sense that a meeting chair should support and respond to those movements too.

Visually, Keyn is one chair with many personalities. It uses four key parts to create every model in the group, so each retains universal appeal marked by an array of base and upholstery options. Keyn Chairs can stand out independently but can also work in harmony as a family.

The fully upholstered version offers additional comfort and creates an opportunity for an optional colour accent to show through the perforation in the back.
