Innovation by Klöber

Klöber is a pioneer in terms of office chair innovation. We’ve focused on customer needs in our work for decades – and developed solutions that bring real benefit. Design plays a major role in this. The fact is, it’s essential to the function of a Klöber chair, not just its appearance.  

Height-adjustable armrest
Adjustable in height by 10 cm, scaled.
The ISO 10993 is an ISO standard series for the biological evaluation of medical devices.
Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany
This design award from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology was presented for leading international achievements from the field of product design for the first time in 1969, when it went by the name of "Bundespreis Gute Form". Since 2006, the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany has been awarded annually for outstanding achievements in the areas of product and communication design and for a selected design personality.
iF DESIGN AWARD
The iF label is recognised worldwide as a quality mark for excellent design.
Lumbar support
Lumbar support, optional. Provides additional support for the lumbar region.
Point-synchronised mechanism
Constant contact with the pelvis during the entire movement. No "shirtdragging" effect.
An abradant and a fabric are subjected to a rubbing motion using the Martindale method. Abrasion resistance is stated in rub cycles. Rub cycles are used as a unit, like grams or centimetres. The fabric is more durable the higher the number of cycles.
red dot design award
The red dot design award is an international design competition that is staged annually, breaking down into the categories of product design and communication design.
Intervertebral discs
An intervertebral disc is a flexible link consisting of fibrocartilage between the vertebrae.
3D arm supports
The armrest top is adjustable by 5 cm in depth and by approx. 3 cm in width without tools. The armrest top is made from soft TPU foam with a pleasant soft feel that is gentle to the skin.
Quality Office
The Quality Office guideline defines quality standards for office furnishings in accordance with the latest ergonomic findings.
Counter chair
Counter chairs are intended specifically for use at checkouts, at counters and reception desks in the retail and wholesale sectors, airports, info points, hotels hospitals and banks.
Footprint
Targets for the sustainability and environmental compatibility of the products are defined in the product development process and the ecological footprint requirements are stipulated as part of the quality assessment. The ecological footprint includes both the recycling rate and an assessment of the energy input.
The American LEED® quality mark (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most broadly established certificate on the international market.
DLX® (Duo-Latex) mesh. Breathable 2-ply technology featuring flexible latex fabric for optimum pressure distribution in the seat and back avoids pressure points and promotes circulation.
The Dutch NPR standard (= Nederlandse Praktijk Richtlijn) defines special office chair dimensions for particularly short and tall people.
GS
Klöber office swivel chairs bear the “GS” (safety-approved) seal of approval and fully comply with the relevant standards and guidelines.

The Klöber philosophy of today concentrates on the key office themes of the future.

Our smart solutions make a significant contribution to tomorrow’s workplace. It’s all about New Work. Comfort features controlled by app, intelligent mechanisms for managing changing users in a coworking space, power supplies for phones, laptops etcetera that aren’t location-dependent – and that’s just a little taster of things to come.

 

The sustainability megatrend is a concern for Klöber, too. With the result that our products have a minimal ecological footprint even now. We have the certificates and environmental datasheets to prove it. We still believe the best form of sustainability is durable products that bring joy for decades.

 

In future, the health and motivation of employees will be key criteria for success. That’s why we blend ergonomics, comfort and aesthetics together in our office chair solutions to create a new unit. How about some examples? The Mera and Moteo models now incorporate climate technology for a personalised comfort temperature, ConWork stands out for maximum flexibility, and the automatic mechanism of the Connex2 is a milestone in the modern office.

 

Innovation as a mindset

What’s the significance of the innovation culture at Klöber? It’s our view of the world. With clear concept definitions in mind, we view lamps, cars, kettles, biros and heaters through different eyes. We look at them as solutions! An interdisciplinary team of engineers, designers and ergonomics experts use them as a basis for convincing office seating solutions, the like of which has never been seen before!
