In typical Wilkhahn tradition, conference chair Sola fuses comfort with crisp design and a classy appeal. The linear shape of the seat shell and the distinctive lines of the aluminum frame define its aesthetic. The slender seat shell is cleverly swivel-mounted at the front and connected with the V-shaped bearer at the back by two pressure springs. As a result, the chair rocks back and forward comfortably.
Sola is a conference task chair that immediately stands apart for its distinctive form. Viewed from the front, the cushioned molded plywood seat shell (covered at the back) looks expansive, but its profile is slender. The frame appears to continue seamlessly from the star base to the center column to the V-shaped support at the front. Then it seems to change direction and culminate in the backward sloping armrests.
The seat shell is swivel-mounted at the front. At the back, it’s positioned with two coated pressure springs, just like shock absorbers, on the V-shaped bearer. The result is adjustable sprung comfort and a rocking capability. This is a healthy, refreshing feature, particularly when meetings take longer than expected.
The curved sections and edges are pleasant to touch and attractive to look at. This attention to detail is also clear in the cushioning. Covers can be chosen from a range of options available in Wilkhahn’s fabric or leather collections. The frame is optionally polished or coated in a black or matt silver satin finish.
