Keilhauer’s first Carbon Neutral product, Swurve™ has been a project of passion for the company’s sustainability team.
The furniture industry has worked diligently to utilize new technologies to improve the sustainability features of their new product introductions. With that in mind, Keilhauer has introduced its Swurve seating collection, their first Carbon Neutral chair.
Designed by Andrew Jones for Keilhauer, the new conference chair features flowing lines and contained proportions. An elegant solution for meeting spaces of all sizes, it brings an organic feeling into the room with distinctive, sculptural design details.
As Keilhauer’s first Carbon Neutral product, Swurve has been a project of passion for the company’s sustainability team. Keilhauer took every possible step to reduce carbon emissions: from sustainably sourcing materials, and responsible manufacturing, to a carefully thought-through end-of-life and recyclability plan. Where carbon emissions remain, such as during transportation, Keilhauer is investing in carbon reduction and climate change mitigation projects to offset. Verified by third parties, every Swurve sold will produce net-zero carbon emissions.
Swurve, Keilhauer’s first Carbon Neutral chair, is built from the highest quality materials, is designed, and manufactured to last for many years, and is supported by Keilhauer’s standard 10-year warranty. Swurve is expected to carry BIFMA level® 2 and SCS Global Services certification for Indoor Air Quality at the Indoor Advantage™ Gold level. It is manufactured in facilities that produce zero waste to landfill and offset 100 per cent of electricity use with renewable energy credits.
Swurve’s environmental footprint is reviewed by a third-party Lifecycle Assessment conforming to ISO 14044 with a cradle to gate scope.

What do you think our readers will love about Swurve?
We believe that your readers will love the carbon neutrality of our product as more and more clients and firms mandate more sustainable design. We also believe that the beautiful form and design, along with the 22 colors the Swurve chair is available in make this chair usable in any space.
Swurve’s distinctive, sculptured form reflects the shapes we find in nature. Graceful, swooping arms gradually change thickness and shape as they subtlety twist out from the chair’s body. Connecting behind the chair’s body they appear to grow organically from the seat. The round, curvaceous feeling of Swurve is a byproduct of these design elements.

We did a digital launch on our website, social and through our rep groups. The product will be exhibited in our showrooms in the coming months. Readers can find their local representative here.
