    WORKING MEETS LOUNGING

    A relaxed feel in your job, home and lifestyle: The WOOOM armchair creates an oasis of pure calm. Its innovative technology makes it a luxurious workspace with lighting, a heated seat, massage function, USB charging facility and a writing tablet. All conveniently operated via an app. 

    The WOOOM seat shell is made of nonwoven material, it is mouldable, light, robust, absorbs sound and retains its shape well. And best of all: this material is 100% recyclable and is itself made from recycled fibres and/or recycled material sourced from shredded PET bottles.

    Be it in an open space office, meeting zone, lounge, lobby or living room – WOOOM offers a well-designed and comfortable place of retreat and new possibilities wherever it is deployed: it is equally suitable for concentrated working, undisturbed encounters, online communication and relaxation.

    WOOOM unites comfort, design and technology in an innovative New Work armchair with an award-winning look. The Red Dot Design Award jury reached the same conclusion, presenting this chair with the coveted award for outstanding product design in both 2020 and 2022.
     

    SUSTAINABLE WORKING SPACE

    At the Development Bank in Den Haag, they’re on a mission to invest in sustainable projects – so the WOOOM armchair is the perfect choice for their new office building with recyclable outfitting. WOOOM’s seat shell is made of recovered plastic and is 100 % recyclable. This chair sets off the look with a splash of colour and creates agile working options with a relaxing feel in communication-oriented zones.
     

    “Its timeless appearance and ingenious extras make the lounge chair an attractive stand-out feature in an everyday office setting.”

    EINE SMARTE WARTELOUNGE

    Dr Karle ordered six WOOOM chairs for his reception area. The boardroom chairs have a homely character that goes well with the mood lighting in the clinic, which is designed to offer a calming atmosphere for patients. The recovery room is also furnished with a WOOOM boardroom chair. There’s a matching ottoman and three more low-back WOOOM chairs with raised sides to finish off the look.

    ERGONOMICS, DESIGN, NEW WORK

    The seating requirements for the new ESAB facility in Budapest were stated as a combination of ergonomics and design that would support new working approaches. Employees can also sit and work comfortably in the communication zones, which are furnished with large and small WOOOM armchairs. 

    WOOOM HAS IT ALL

    Just like a proper workstation – including a feel-good factor. Be it the integrated WOOOM LIGHT reading light that delivers perfect illumination for reading or typing, or a practical writing tablet, its range of convenient features extends to an infinitely variable heating function for the seat and back and a three-zone massage function. The WOOOM armchair ticks all the boxes, and comes with a light that can either be operated using an app or simply and conveniently using its touch function.

    What material is the WOOOM armchair made of?
    Show more

    ·         It is made of nonwovens (also referred to as PET felt), i.e. polyester fibre and recycled bicomponent fibre. 
    ·         This fibre can contain 60% “bottle flakes” produced from shredded PET bottles.
    ·         WOOOM uses bottle flakes that are sourced entirely from Europe.
    ·         These bottle flakes are melted at temperatures of approximately 280 °C and then directly processed into polyester fibre. 

    How is the nonwoven material shaped?
    Show more
    • First, the nonwoven mat is cut roughly to size, then it is heated in an industrial furnace for 20 minutes at 200 °C. 
    • Once this is done, the material is placed in a mould and inserted into a high-pressure press where it is compressed, cooled and cured and the desired end product achieves its final shape.
    • The resulting item is perfected in a CNC-controlled water-jet cutting system before any excess residual nonwoven materials are removed to create the appealing contours of the finished product.
    How can the nonwoven material used in the WOOOM armchair be cleaned? 
    Show more


    The nonwoven material used in the WOOOM is not only comfortable – it is also amazingly easy to care for. Here are a few care recommendations for best results:

    • Vacuum regularly (setting for textiles/curtains).
    • Soiling should always be treated immediately for best results.
    • Mop up liquids straight away – by blotting with an absorbent cloth.
    • Dried-on dirt must be brushed out with a soft brush to avoid damaging the finish.
    • Use commercially available dry foam cleaner for spot cleaning.
    • Small marks can also be cleaned with a magic eraser. 
    Which devices can you use to operate WOOOM?
    Show more
    • iOS App 
    • iPhone must support Bluetooth and NFC
    • iOS version 11.0 or later
    • iPhone7 or newer models
    • Android: Location sharing must be enabled, version 5.0 or later (version 7.0 or later is recommended)
    What can you do if your lounge chair does not heat up?
    Show more
    • Check to see whether the battery is charged and if it has been fully inserted.
    • Alternatively the power supply must be connected.
    • Caution: The occupancy sensor is not activated unless the user weighs at least 45 kg.
    • Check the plug and cable to make sure they are properly connected and not damaged.
       
    What can you do if you are unable to connect to your WOOOM?
    Show more
    • Once the battery has been inserted or the power supply has been connected, wait approximately 3 seconds for the system to start up before sitting down. 
    • It is important that your device supports NFC.
    • Then activate Bluetooth and NFC on your phone. 
    • Android devices scan constantly for an NFC connection, so pass your Android phone over the armrest first, and only tap the “Connect now” button once you have received the “NFC tag connected” message. 
    • iPhones, on the other hand, will only scan for NFC connections if prompted by the user. First tap the “Connect now” button, and then pass your device along the armrest. 
    • Caution: The NFC chip is located in the top of the device with the iPhone (near the camera), in Samsung models it is often below the camera.
    What can you do if you are unable to connect to your WOOOM even after successfully establishing an NFC connection?
    Show more
    • Check to see whether your WOOOM is connected to a power source and whether the battery is charged and fully inserted.
    • Alternatively the power supply must be connected.
    • If the circuit is broken during use (power supply disconnected and/or battery removed), please stand up for 1–2 seconds, and then confirm the message in the app so that the chair reconnects. (This is a safety measure that prevents the chair from restarting)
    • Alternatively, you can terminate the app and then restart it on your device.
    What does the occupancy sensor do?
    Show more
    • WOOOM has an occupancy sensor built into the seat. It is only possible to connect WOOOM with the smartphone if someone is sitting in the chair.
    • The light, massage and heating are only active if someone is sitting in the chair. These functions switch off automatically approximately 10 seconds after the chair is vacated, after which the chair is disconnected from the phone.
    • Charging via USB works regardless of whether the chair is occupied or a phone is connected.
    What can you do if you are unable to operate any of the functions?
    Show more

    Always activate the main switch for each function first – this is located at the top right edge of the screen.

    How can you see how much charge is left?
    Show more
    • Press and hold the check button for approx. 2 seconds – this allows you to read off the charge status according to the colour: LED colour RED  <30%, YELLOW 30–90%, GREEN >90%.
    How long will the battery last?
    Show more


    WOOOM offers various different settings and the manner in which the chair is used significantly affects how long it will operate between charges. Here are some empirical values:
    ·         Heating at highest level: approx. 3.5 hours
    ·         Massage at maximum level: approx. 12 hours
    ·         Light at maximum brightness: approx. 26 hours
    ·         Combination of heating, massage & light: approx. 2.5 hours

    How do you care for WOOOM upholstery?
    Show more


    Wipe the upholstery with a damp cloth (not wet!) to clean, or simply use a vacuum cleaner.
