Refreshingly different

 

Imagine a manufacturing centre – with incredible potential for customisation and quality down to the last detail. And now a company driven by innovation, producing goods for an international market.  Put both of these together, locate it in Owingen and give it a name: Klöber.

 

Klöber’s a company with tradition and a twist

 

It was founded in 1935 by Margarete Klöber – a woman. Remarkable in those days. It’s also remarkable that they have successfully developed one office chair after another to reinvent the concept of workplace sitting.

As with the original product, the “Polstergleich” chair, the emphasis today is still on personal needs – in terms of health, comfort, sustainability, user-friendliness and individuality. Over time additional preferences have become important, for example networking. We already have a solution in our range to tick that box: a high-end reading chair with comfort features that are easily controlled from an app.

 

This absolute focus on office chairs means that Klöber can infiltrate the very DNA of seating in the workplace. The result: chairs that apply ingenious ideas to overcome highly specific challenges – such as a difficult room climate, electrostatic discharge, private zones in the open space, or maximum customisation potential. We mean it when we say: Sitting, only different.
