We don’t want to forget the conference room. This chair was made to be the ultimate collaboration tool – led by research-backed evidence, designers set out to create a chair with minimal manual adjustments and maximum comfort in which hours-long brainstorms and meetings could be spent. The Cobi’s many features include a Flexible design with an elastomeric top edge, weight-activated adjustments, and a cogent Connect 3-D fabric.
