Mera office swivel chairs and visitor chairs by Klöber ensure a first-class sitting experience for both health and comfort. High-tech features make the chairs easy to use, ensure healthy dynamics and offer lasting benefits. The Mera programme meets all requirements for office furnishings by offering a tailor-made range of forms, colours and functions, as well as value for money.

Design: Jörg Bernauer

 

The range has now been extended to include variants in white and grey. Klöber also offers Mera with an integrated mesh back. The patented mesh is a world first and offers extraordinary comfort in a coherent form.

White-and-grey plastic shells have now joined the ranks of the classic black models. Mera is thus accommodating the current trends for aesthetic clarity that is also less tiring on the eye. The new shells complement white surfaces or coloured interiors particularly well.

The mesh back is a world first, manufactured in three-component technology. This method involves combining plastic materials with different elastic properties in order to create ergonomic backrests. The frame and mesh are made as a single piece for a coherent form and particularly high stability. The mesh geometry adapts to the individual user. Larger mesh structures offer greater flexibility, whereas smaller ones provide greater support.

The products in the Mera range by Klöber have many shared features. Office swivel chairs, cantilever chairs and four-legged chairs fulfil individual requirements whilst creating a sense of coherence in the office as a whole. With its compelling and distinctive backrest curve, Mera integrates well in modern interiors thanks to its transparent, lightweight styling.

 

The new products in the Mera range share ergonomic and functional properties. A seat width of 49 centimetres, a seat depth of 39 centimetres plus 6 centimetres depth adjustment and a high back measuring 59 centimetres offer plenty of workspace for tall and short users alike. The point-synchro mechanism, the lumbar adjustment and the patented quick-set mechanism for swift adjustment to the user's body weight offer healthy seated mobility. An adjustable seat surface tilt and an integrated seat wedge keep the back upright. When the seat is adjusted, the seat wedge always remains in the best ergonomic position to ensure a comfortable seat depth. Armrests come in three variants to meet personal preferences. All parts are produced from durable materials that are suitable for segregated recycling. For the new white-and-grey variants, the armrests and base are also available in white and grey. 

The visitor chairs also offer a comfortable amount of space. The well considered dimensions make it easier to get up from the chairs. In the back of the two-ply 3D mesh, the integrated lumbar reinforcement provides healthy support. The chair exudes clarity and precision. The lines of the closed armrests continue seamlessly into the back and frame. The details of the tubular steel, which joins flush with the armrests, create a sense of harmony. Plastic and chrome meet in fluid transitions. The functional interaction of different materials provides stability in the frame and is pleasantly warm to the touch. Thanks to the practical proportions of the armrests, the chair fits easily under any desk or table. Mera visitor chairs are optionally stackable and alternatively available with a mesh, plastic or upholstered back. In future, the visitor chairs will also be available in white and grey.
