Rabobank De Langstraat, Waalwijk

The simplicity of Connex2 was the perfect choice for the open-plan areas in the new building at Rabobank De Langstraat in Waalwijk, Netherlands. The building features a large-scale glass façade, giving it a very modern appearance and the open-plan rooms are designed to include various communication-oriented areas and meeting zones.

Primary considerations for the selection of task chairs and counter chairs were ergonomics and modern design. The Connex2 not only complies with these requirements fully, the choice of black also contrasts perfectly with the light interior décor and yellow highlights.

Office swivel chair

  • Its functions respond automatically to the body’s needs to ensure an ideal sitting position with minimum fuss.
  • The only manual adjustments are seat height, seat depth and lumbar support . Everything else happens of its own accord thanks to the automatic point-synchronised mechanism and 3D seat movement.
  • the point-synchronised mechanism allows a wide opening angle when leaning back, keeping constant contact between the backrest and the sitter’s body. The return force kicks in automatically: for anyone – whether they are heavy or light.
  • 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 seat moves with them, thereby reducing the pressure on the underside of the thighs. 
  • The soft-touch armrests drop down when the chair is pushed into the desk, rounding off the intelligent sitting experience.
