Teknion has launched Essa, a light task chair designed by PearsonLloyd. Perfect for relaxed and comfortable professional settings or home office set-ups, Essa captures a pure, sculptural shape within a pared-down scale.
The chair’s elevated aesthetic doesn’t compromise top-notch ergonomic performance, providing just the right amount of support. Essa is modern, refined, and receptive. The sweep of its back is echoed by the fluid line of molded armrests.
“The forms are essentially derived from where you need material and support and everything else is taken away,” said Luke Pearson, PearsonLloyd. “As space becomes ever more precious, the fluid soft curves and compact form not only give great comfort but make the chair pleasurable to navigate and to move around.”
“We wanted to design a new type of work chair that moves effortlessly between different spaces to support an ever-changing landscape of work styles and cultures,” added Tom Loyd, PearsonLloyd. “Merging agility and informality, Essa is friendly and comfortable to use. Compact in scale with discrete controls, Essa is also a perfect home office complement.”
The chair is offered fully upholstered or upholstered with plastic back options. Visual and tactile richness is added with Luum Textiles that encase the seat and curved backrest.
