FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Allseating Launches Attune™, a Dynamic Seating Series that Redefines Comfort and Adaptability
Designed in Collaboration With Award-Winning Aaron Duke and Firm, Studio Black Box, Attune Is a Futuristic Task Seating Solution That Adapts to the User’s Body
Toronto, ON – July 2023 – Allseating, a leader in cost-effective and highly ergonomic seating solutions for the office, education, hospitality, and healthcare industries, is pleased to announce the launch of Attune™, a futuristic task chair and winner of Chicago Athenaeum Museum’s Good Design Award. Attune utilizes an advanced polymer that instantly adapts to the user's body while remaining durable and exceptionally resistant to impact and flex fatigue.
"Comfort should never be sacrificed while working, whether in the office or elsewhere. Employees need an adaptable, lean, and lightweight solution that seamlessly fits into their environment," said Paul Vendittelli, President of Allseating. "Attune meets the demand for dynamic seating that accommodates each individual user, providing superior comfort and proper ergonomic support."
Combining the characteristics of high-performance elastomers and flexible plastics, Attune's dynamic form exudes a lightness that expresses levity, mobility, and adaptability – all in response to the demand for collaborative, highly flexible, and intuitive task seating. The design features structured yet flexible vertical and horizontal cutouts strategically placed to reduce pressure and increase seated breathability. The connective strands within the chair intelligently open up to release tension, creating a robust support system that remains surprisingly supple. This balance of strength and flexibility allows Attune to adjust and conform to each user's body, offering a personalized and comfortable seating experience. The design of Attune also prioritizes inclusivity across body types.
"Employee wellness trends continue to expand to new areas of professional life. As workspaces become more shared and less personal, there is an increased demand for lightweight seating that provides all-day comfort," said Aaron Duke, Principal Designer and Co-Founder of Studio Black Box. "Attune is a great solution for any space requiring comfortable, light, and easy-to-use seating. It requires simple specification with minimal configuration – a standard task seating solution that naturally adapts to fit each individual user."
Enhancing both comfort and aesthetic value, Attune can be specified with an upholstered seat and an upholstered back. The combination of Attune's flexible poly back and formed poly seat delivers superior ergonomic support, instantly relieving pressure points and providing user-specified lumbar support. Attune's design language is elementary and subtle yet expressive in nature. Universally applicable, Attune seamlessly fits into a range of environments, including commercial offices, home offices, hospitality settings, and institutional environments.
Available in two frame finishes, Black and Birch, Attune can be further customized with seat and back accents in Black, Birch, Smoke, Midnight, and Currant, ensuring a perfect match for any room. Additionally, Attune can be armless or specified in two arm options: a loop conference arm and, coming later this year, a height-adjustable task arm. The loop conference arm can be specified with an optional upholstered arm wrap available in Lara, a carded phthalate-free vinyl by CF Stinson, and is offered in five color options that match the poly finishes of Attune including Cloud, Pitch, Tempest, Tamale, and Mystery.
Like all Allseating seating, tables, and case goods, Attune is LEVEL®3 certified, the highest sustainability achievement a product can reach. The LEVEL® sustainability certification is a voluntary standard that establishes measurable performance criteria to provide information on indoor air quality, material composition, issues related to life cycle assessments, social responsibility, and ecosystem impacts. Allseating proudly holds the distinction of being the first Canadian-based company to achieve LEVEL®3 certification in the seating category.
