The SILQ chair is a breakthrough in seating design. Its innovative materiality is both mechanism and artistry, and delivers a personal experience by responding to the unique movements of your body.
The idea for SILQ was clear; Steelcase designers and egineers wanted to create a chair that’s simple, more organism than machine. One that operates intuitively and invites the human body to participate in the experience. To get there they pushed the boundaries of material science. Through explorations with carbon fiber, they achieved their vision. But it was a material process breakthrough that embodies the qualities of carbon fiber, that allows them to deliver on their aspiration at mass scale.
SILQ is a truly intuitive chair. When you sit down and recline, SILQ intuitively responds to the natural movement of your body, making you feel like you’re a part of it. To keep it simple, it only has one manual adjustment for seat height. The rest of the outputs of the chair are based on the inputs you provide. This unique chair is also a canvas for personal or brand expression. The unprecedented range of material combinations allows you to move from one end of the design spectrum to the other.
