So, thanks to its ergonomics and its comfortable backrest, it can equip large workspaces used by people of all ages carrying out all types of roles. Its technical qualities enable adjusting each chair to the body and each persons needs, whether in a conventional workspace, in a home office or in a co-working space. Its design allows the user to feel good and be more productive wherever he/she is.
Improving user well-being
“Workspaces are constantly evolving. Tasks, areas and roles become blurred or intertwine depending on the stage the project is at. But ergonomics and looking after people, their comfort and well-being is fundamental. Trim offers all that, together with a friendly and fresh, completely customisable aesthetic. This German Design Award is recognition of all the qualities of this design”, explains Actiu´s Advisor and Director of Brand Strategy, Soledad Berbegal.
This design aimed at professional and operational environments has three models: one with a plastic laminate backrest, one with a mesh backrest and one with Tex upholstery. “Trim´s texture, designed using highly durable plastic laminate, creates a mesh which supports the back and improves ventilation, making long days at work easier and improving user well-being”, explains Marcelo Alegre, from the Alegre Design studio, designer of Trim.
