Lovers of Burgess Furniture’s original Turini stacking chair will be sitting comfortably after the British furniture innovator re-imagined the classic to mark its 60th anniversary.
Called Adamas, the new collection is based on Burgess’ timeless Turini design but features a uniquely designed, FIRA-approved AirComfort ergonomic seat cushion. Burgess Furniture closely worked with FIRA’s ergonomics department for the development of the exclusive AirComfort moulded seat cushion. FIRA’s independent tests included pressure mapping and user trials, to ensure the new seat gave maximum support to lower back areas without compromising user comfort and positioning.
Designed by Burgess Furniture’s Design Manager, Peter Roth, Adamas also features a ‘sandwich’ construction back upholstery, which minimises the visual effect of the chair’s tubular frame.
“They say you can’t beat a classic but with Adamas, we’ve given a fresh new take to the chair that started the Burgess story. Adamas has all the lightweight, stackable and flexible features that people love about Turini, but with a new emphasis on the seating experience. User comfort is paramount in today’s modern hospitality world, just as important as efficiency, as venues increasingly host working clients. Adamas takes its name from the Ancient Greek meaning of longevity and indestructibility. It also relates to diamond, which is apt as 2019 is our 60th anniversary year. A perfect tailored solution, the range combines exceptional comfort with a choice of on-trend architectural frames and fabric finishes.” – Craig Kent, Production Director of Burgess Furniture.
