Ride the Wave to Ergonomic Comfort

Ride the Wave to Ergonomic Comfort

Designer Justus Kolberg and Narbutas remind us that—no matter whether working in an office, at home, or with a flexible hybrid style—one needs a good chair.

Judges of the IF Hannover Design Award, the Red Dot Design Zentrum NRW, the IDEA Gold Award, and the Japanese Good Design Award would seem to agree, as they uniformly bestow distinction for ergonomic excellence on Surf, Kolberg’s innovative task chair with a backrest silhouette that resembles a windsurfing sail.

Surf’s aesthetic is distinctive and appealing, but it’s got a lot more going for it besides, not limited to intuitive seat depth and arm-height adjustments, synchro mechanism with backrest travel limitation, and tilt-tension adjustment.

But Surf’s most striking attribute is its Runner Mesh. This is a breathable, tactile surface with a 3D structure offered in nine vibrant colors: “In neutral earth tones it will perfectly fit into any modern interior, while bright colors will bring an indispensable accent to the office.”

Surf also deftly negotiates the rough waves of transit. The chair ships in two pieces in streamlined packaging that requires minimum assembly (no tools required).

In line with Designer Kolburg’s philosophy and body of work, Surf exemplifies a balance between form and function: “a perfect blend of excellent design and undeniable sitting comfort.”
