New features to the Beo, Collage and Event seating solutions provide users, designers and facility managers with increased flexibility, durability and easy maintenance.

Kimball Office's popular side, guest and lounge seating line, Beo, has five new enhancements. New features include a clean-out feature to help organizations easily wipe seating surfaces to remove debris, a wider seat that adds an extra extra three inches in order to accommodate individuals up to 350 pounds. Tablet surfaces are available in wood or laminate, and a specialized grommet can be installed in one or both arms to allow users to transfer and lock the tablet surface for increased functionality. Beo's arms, backs and seats can be upholstered separately in order to delineate space through color and also match the design aesthetic. Finally, an optional quiet caster promotes a peaceful recovery and work environment.

Designed for private offices, public spaces and meeting rooms, Collage is a versatile, stylish, wood-framed guest seating option. A new bariatric bench solution increases the line's versatility, without compromising its design, which is already available with or without arms, as two-person benches and with a slat or upholstered back.

A new bariatric bench is also available with the Event line. Suited for meeting and training rooms, the bench is available in the line’s standard options such as: mobile or static legs, with or without arms and a variety of designs for the back shape. The bariatric bench supports a greater range of users and brings increased flexibility to commonly used spaces.

"Today's healthcare settings must support broader audiences, which is why Kimball Office has also added a bariatric bench to its Collage and Event seating lines. The benches blend into existing and new design settings, which allow users to feel comfortable when entering the environment," said Max Holland, director of vertical markets.
