The Design Story
Designer Todd Bracher, while creating the Trea, a unique multipurpose chair, studied how nature had resolved the issue of integrated articulation. His inspiration was a lobster shell: observing how the exoskeleton moves in harmony with the organism, while protecting it. Using the concept of nature's design, that inspiration became a chair which responds to the our natural desire to move and recline, and the Trea does this. Without knobs, dials, or levers. The result is a "solid state" recline mechanism which adapts intuitively to everyone.
"I wanted to design a multipurpose chair with a visual simplicity and unique recline mechanism that would allow it to be used anywhere and by anyone."

Seat Pad Fabric
Fourtis - Grade 1
Inspired by the Latin word fortis, meaning strong, this fabric is the ultimate ratio of durability and flexibility thanks to a unique weave of two-blended colors, and offering a four-way stretch.
Corde 4 - Grade 1
Constructed from cotton, Corde 4 includes a four-way stretch and a small, modular weave. The result is a dimensionally ribbed surface on the face of the fabric that remains soft to the touch.
Lotus - Grade 1
This four-way stretch textile is water repellant and easy to clean, making it an ideal textile for healthcare and hospitality environments. Its polyurethane finish with nylon backing boasts a soft texture while offering exceptional durability. It exceeds all standards for contract upholstery and healthcare tests.
Sensuede - Grade 3
Sensuede was developed to be the best and most luxurious engineered suede available. The faux suede's soft touch comes from the use of breathable and wrinkle resistant recycled microfibers that are finer than a human hair but are extra-strong, resulting in a very resilient fabric. This material also was selected because of its environmentally sensitive content and manufacturing process.
