The importance of a well-designed, ergonomic chair cannot be stressed enough—no matter the space. A key attribute in designing for productivity, the search for seating that’s the right physical and visual fit can be overwhelming. Looking to streamline the specification experience, SitOnIt Seating, a leading manufacturer of task chairs, recently consolidated their multi-brand portfolio into one entity. Coming in the wake of the mass home-office migration, SitOnIt Seating’s innovative move brings Symmetry’s office products and IDEON’s lounge furniture into the same portfolio, creating a single destination for a variety of specification needs.
“By consolidating our lounge and workstation collections into a single company, SitOnIt Seating can be that all-in-one partner everyone—and every space—needs,” says Melissa Chapman, chief marketing officer. Designers now can easily peruse IDEON’s cushions and modular pieces, which add a comfortable poise and professionalism to any interior, and Symmetry’s smart organizational tools in one space. SitOnIt Seating’s comprehensive portfolio, which includes its precision-engineered Vectra chair, offers designers endless options when it comes to furnishing styles, colors, and office systems. The brand’s one-stop-shop philosophy also includes online resources, such as consultations with design and planning experts to help source products that bring to life any vision imaginable.
To further streamline the specification process, SitOnIt Seating upgraded its visualization tool, now called ChairBuilder+, to better fit the company’s consolidated offerings. Expanding on its original capabilities to specify and quote products as an efficient and organized planning resource, the new augmented reality feature allows users to see how the products would look in a given space. Users can learn more about their selected products on ChairBuilder+, like the light-scale and weight-activated Mavic chair, designed by Martin Bellendat. Additionally, ChairBuilder+ features new design templates—including floorplans designed to promote physical distancing—for an assortment of built environments.
“We centralized our entire product portfolio so that customers can think beyond brands and focus on solutions,” Chapman explains. With custom capabilities, SitOnIt Seating’s offerings do not simply fill a room with furniture but create a harmonious workflow ecosystem. From ensuring desk and chair height align for good posture and productivity, to configuring different arrangements of furniture for work and meetings in the same room, SitOnIt Seating’s customer-centered approach to innovation stands outs for both its award-winning designs and considerate service.
