This multi award-winning chair delivers incredible comfort, ergonomics, function, durability all in a stunning design.
How does Via Seating fit with the emerging re-definition of the workplace?
All Via Seating products support and agile and active workplace. Employees aren’t coming into the office every day for 8 hours their schedules are flexible and unpredictable. Via Seating has work chairs that are ergonomically designed to adapt to corporate standards, home workspace set ups and hybrid working environments i.e. shared or co-op workspaces. Functionality is the key and having a focus on features that are super user friendly and intuitive. But also, contemporary design that fits within the broadest context of space, meaning that you can visualize the chair in a corporate setting but also in your own home.
In addition, Via Seating chairs are appropriately scaled to fit to a variety of workspace sizes e.g. Genie® is designed with its narrower upper back support to enable the user to freely move and not feel restricted even if in a smaller space. Finally, all surface casters are the norm on via chairs. This ensures that wherever the chair is and whatever the chair is on i.e. concrete, tile, wood, or carpet, it is safe to use both for the user and for the surface.
Can you tell a story or give an example of how Via Seating products will help our readers design and implement great workplace solutions?
Workplace context is shifting and will continue to shift. Via Seating understands this and has researched what the common denominators are to support these multiple contexts. When designing and implementing a great workplace solution, one must understand that function/application, budget, and aesthetic, needs to be all inclusive to meet the needs of the client. Each chair within the Via Seating portfolio can be custom built to perfectly balance all of these elements.
Great workplace solutions demand high performance ergonomic solutions, that can adapt to multiple contexts as already mentioned earlier but that can also be affordable for the client. As workplace continues to evolve so does the role of purchasing these solutions. Therefore, Via Seating products are budget friendly regardless of whether the employer is purchasing for corporate space, supporting a stipend for their employee for their work from home space, or requiring the employee to contribute to or purchase that product for themselves. Affordability is more important than ever. Via Seating’s thought is comfort, support, high performance ergonomics combined with great design should be available to all who need it.
