The shell of the BEA lends it a sleek profile
The Bea chair
While conventional seating systems articulate ergonomic technology by exposing an exo-skeleton, the Bea adopts a radically new approach by incorporating it in a flexible and visually appealing shell. In its loaded version, Bea adheres to the strictest ergonomic and safety standards, while in its 'non-work' version it doubles up as a residential lounge chair.
Bea has an internal frame in Zytel® 80G33 which is covered with a double layer of reinforced Pebax®. The technology utilized here is similar to that employed in the manufacture of athletic footwear. Housed in its task intensive model is a BeaRevo synchron mechanism with push and click controls that allow adjustable armrests, lumbar adjustment and forward seat sliding. The seat is upholstered in flame retardant anti- transpiration fabrics.
