Eclipse chairs

Eclipse model: 643-N-03-5US-GR 5 (BLAZER SILVERDALE)

designer curves make this elegant chair

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Italian designer Angelo Pinaffo created the Eclipse series. Eclipse chairs have a continuous line, curved like the elliptical orbits of the spherical planets. Their shape generates a clean and essential seat, which conveys lightness. Choose from a stackable, unique v-leg, a classic beech wood or light task swivel base. Available in 3 monochromatic or 3 colorful shades with or without an arm and arm tablet. V-leg chairs stack armless, with arms and with arm tablets. Add an optional upholstered seat. Discover vintage beauty and essential comfort with the 2020 Red Dot Design winning series, Eclipse.

Seat Reference Point (SRP),
The ergonomic seat depth measurement.

 

Measurement G (and not measurement H) is the true seat reference point. SRP is an ergonomic term that defines where there is a slight indentation in the lumbar (i.e. where the sitter is benefiting from the lumbar support) to the front edge of the seat. It gives the true measurement of surface area in contact with the body. It is very useful for correctly matching up with hip to knee measurements for ergonomists taking into account the two – three finger gap between the back of the leg to the edge of the seat. It is very important to ensure no restriction in circulation to the lower extremities (lower legs and ankles).
