Supreme Simplicity for Multipurpose Applications
(Delanco, NJ – June 7, 2012) Neocon 2012 will be the launch of the versatile “Allround” stacking chair from Stylex. The multi-use Allround was designed to convey a sense of elegant simplicity. Unpretentious, but sophisticated in its appeal, Allround is perfect for dining, meetings, informal gatherings… in fact any activity where a low-key, flexible chair is in order.
According to John Golden, president of Stylex, “We are extremely happy to work once again with Boris Berlin and his new partner, Aleksej Iskos. Their creative vision and deep understanding of contemporary design are bountifully apparent in Allround.”
Boris Berlin, principal of Berlin Iskos adds, “Probably the most complicated and noble discipline is to design without egotistic eccentricity. We set out to create a simple, well-functioning chair that has a quiet but strong identity. Our goal was to make Allround both comfortable and harmonious. These chairs work in any architectural setting, doing equally well clustered around a table or in big numbers in conference halls and auditoriums.”
Allround achieves its appeal in a beguilingly simple fashion. The Allround frame is ⅝” round steel tubing. Cross-stretchers are 3/8” solid rod. The seat shell is molded plywood contoured for comfort. Arm pads are thermoplastic elastomer over 7/16” solid rod that is slid into the tubular frame and welded in place. The stack pad is made from recycled polypropylene. Glides are high-density polyethylene. Sled base models stack 10 on the floor and 18 on a dolly. Aside from the stacking models, the line includes armless counter and bar height models with both full and reduced (lower) backs.
The complete Stylex offering of 12 powder coat paint colors, as well as polished and satin chrome, is available for the frames. Wood shells come in 7 different finish choices. Allround is largely recyclable (the specific percentage depends on the model) as well as being Greenguard Certified.
Founded in 1956 by the Golden family, Stylex focuses its efforts on the modern office environment with careful consideration given to balancing aesthetics, value, ergonomics, and green technology. All Stylex products meet Greenguard Children and Schools and Indoor Air Quality certification, use 100% CFC-free foam and low or no VOC adhesives.
