the Steelcase Karman office chair

An entirely new mesh fabric which is exclusive to Steelcase, Intermix, is key to the design. Regular mesh fabrics are light and breathable, but not always so durable. Intermix, the result of long ،urs of experimentation, was made using a unique weaving process blending yarns and filaments. In combination with the flexible frame, it creates support that neither sags nor jars. While embellishment does not have a part to play in essential design, there is flexibility in the weave to allow for differing textures and expressions, and the introduction of colour, so that other contemporary design itches are scratched – the need for tactility, warmth and self-expression.
