An ergonomic and aesthetic line of chairs for demanding users

Press Release: December 10, 2009

Internationally renowned and recognized designer Yrj Kukkapuro and Treston Oy, a leading European supplier of industrial furniture, have collaborated in the design of a completely new line of work chairs that offer uncompromising ergonomics and aesthetic design.

The collaboration between Treston Oy and Yrj Kukkapuro, who is known as a tireless exponent of ergonomics, stems from a shared mission: to create a new line of work chairs designed with ergonomics in mind from start to finish for demanding applications. This goal led to a two-year collaboration project resulting in a line of chairs Treston has now introduced.

A union of ergonomics and aestheticsĀ The importance of ergonomic attributes in industrial furniture has been accentuated in recent years as the expectations on productivity and workplace comfort continue to rise. The ergonomics of Trestons new line of chairs is based on effective lumbar support. The ability to adjust the chairs further enhances the level of comfort the chairs provide.

The result is an overall good sitting position that is relaxed and helps lessen fatigue when performing tasks that require focused concentration and attention to detail, says Trestons Project Manager Reijo Raatesalmi, an expert in industrial ergonomics.

The materials and components used in the chairs the textiles, the gas springs and the casters have been carefully chosen on the basis of stringent quality criteria.

Yrj Kukkapuros touch is clearly visible in the unique, bold, and timeless design of the chairs.

Not only do the chairs easily meet the requirements for industrial and technical environments, they are also pleasing to the back and to the eye. This expands the utility of the chairs to offices and conference rooms, says Trestons Marketing Manager Heikki Hrml.
