Designer’s Perspective

For a designer, designing an office chair is highly exciting and challenging. It is a product where function, technology and ergonomics meet to deliver a superior seating experience and enhance the image. I have used my insights of new age materials, design culture rooted in Europe and built this chair on Godrej Interio’s legacy of outstanding ergonomics. The outcome is ACE -- the chair for the workspaces of tomorrow.
