Statement of the jury
German Design Award
1
Intuitive operation of controls

Adventurous use of colour makes for a pleasant surprise with Connex2: the controls are colour-coded so that they are easy to identify and intuitive to use. The backrest bar with integral armrests is optionally available in black, white-grey or polished aluminium.

Soft-Touch-Feeling

The soft-touch armrests drop down when the chair is pushed into the desk, rounding off the intelligent sitting experience.

Dynamic seat surface

The three-dimensional seat movement encourages dynamic lateral left-right movement and supports the natural movement impulse.

When the sitter is leaning forwards in a concentrated working position the se at moves with them, thereby reducing the pressure on the underside of the thighs.

Things used to be complicated. We’ve simplified matters: Connex2

The form is clear and functional

The design of Connex2 is primarily characterised by lines and turns from within the same design idiom, as well as familiar curves. One distinctive characteristic is the central aluminium element of the backrest support. 

The armrests are an integral part and therefore an effective eye-catcher that adds value. They offer outstanding comfort: they move with the user when they recline. The arms are always comfortably in contact with the armrest wraps. 

It connects the back and armrest with the chair as a whole, like a belt. This design feature and functional unit is new on the market, and should be highlighted as one of the special features of Connex2.

A new freedom of colour

Connex2 is refreshing with its new free expression of colour: the controls are highlighted in colour. 

The controls are clearly recognisable and intuitive to use – either in classic black or off-white, or in a striking shade of green or blue. This adds value where the use of this function is concerned – and therefore enhances the personalised adjustment potential of Connex2. 

The colours green and blue are the result of a study carried out by Klöber. A system-wide colour scheme was developed based on the latest workplace trends: The physical and psychological wellbeing of employees is the central focus in the rapidly-changing working world. Colours play a key role here, as we take in over 70% of all information through our eyes. Colour and combinations are used specifically to make the working space into a living space.

Two trend themes are the basis for development of the colour collection used for the controls of Connex2.
