Onda chairs

superior all-mesh seating

The perfect balance between form and function. When one favors ergonomic function and adjustability the design of the chair tends to take a back seat. The converse is also true when aesthetic considerations take the fore front, then the ergonomic function and adjustability become less important. Onda supports both ergonomic and design philosophies and holds both in perfect harmony without any compromise. Discover instantaneous comfort personalized to the way you sit with Onda—Italian for “Wave”—Via Seating’s first all mesh chair. Design by Via Seating’s Studio V.

Note: Dimensions are recorded by Via Seating engineers using the BIFMA Chair Measuring Device® (CMD) and the BIFMA Universal Measuring Procedure. This reduces human error and puts all measurements on a single standard. Personally measuring results by differently sized individuals sitting in or out of a chair can result in different dimensions.
