Introducing: the Crossover family

The difference a chair makes

DESIGN STORY
In the extended hours we spend seated at work, our choice of chair impacts our comfort, concentration and wellbeing – whether we’re consciously aware or not.

Designed by Hans Thyge & Co, Crossover is a meeting point between two concepts – the ergonomics and functionality of a task chair combined with the sophisticated profile of a meeting chair. The result is a unique design: an all-day chair that draws the eye and provides comfort for the spectrum of work activities.

FORM & FUNCTION
Jesper Jensen, company owner suggests, “Modern work is characterised by technology, mobility and collaboration – Crossover satisfies each of these requirements while creating a strong connection between the user and the solution.”

When seated, Crossover responds to the natural postures of your body with a synchronised tilt mechanism. This connects your movements with the chair and cradles different postures throughout the day. To keep things effortless, Crossover is weight-activated and has only two manual adjustments for seat height and tilt activation.

The refined form of the Crossover series creates a sense of finesse in the workspace and is perfect for hot-desking, workstation and meeting settings.

DESIGNER
For Hans Thyge & Co, all materials possess exciting properties that are to be challenged and brought out in the design process. They believe that design is a question of stimulating memories and dreams and paving the way for new design perspectives.

Thyge suggests, “Good design tells a story or solves a complex problem in an interesting way and as simple as possible. We all love simple stories that have a clear message.”

The Crossover chair series is available to commercial users in all markets where Icons of Denmark products are sold. The chair will be launched at this year’s designjunction on 18th to 22nd September 2019.
