New Flexible Guest Seating Design by Aodh O Donnell
(MAY 2015—Delanco, NJ) — New for NeoCon 2015, Stylex introduces Ridge Guest. Ridge Guest is a chair whose form is defined by the continuity of a delicate line. It is also a product that can be adapted to almost any application. Ridge Guest’s shell subtly blends purity of form and a contemporary stance to create a harmonious, highly functional seating product. Its wide range of base options effectively leverage Ridge Guest’s universal appeal, allowing it to serve effectively in many different roles: breakout areas, formal offices, and work lounge environments.
Ridge Guest provides seating comfort based on fundamental ergonomic principles as well as contemporary styling to enhance the character of any environment. Increased functionality is available by selecting the four-blade base with either a free swivel or a return-to-center feature. In addition, there is a five-blade conference base offering tilt, casters, height adjustability, as well as swivel.
Aside from the swivel options, there are four fixed bases including a cantilever sled base, a metal four-leg base, a tubular sled base, and a four-leg wood base.
Ridge Guest is a bucket chair with a twist. Quite literally. It takes the archetypical bucket chair form and sculpts it with a twisting bevel detail. Combined with the specifier’s preference of upholstery material and base finish, the outcome is a refreshingly dynamic design that pairs well with any decor.
Seating design need not be revolutionary to offer value and purpose. By paying careful attention to the subtle interaction between users and products in the context of the changing office landscape, the state of the art within a given product category can be advanced. Ridge Guest is a product that represents this sort of “quiet innovation” based on its flexibility and aesthetics.
