Product description

Designed by Emilio Ambasz, the Brief chair stands out for the ability of its backrest, seat and armrests to adapt to different anthropometric measurements, supporting the different postures of each individual user. The Brief chair is available in the President, Executive, Managerial and Meeting models. The chair has a metal frame. In the version with armrests the user can set the height within a range of 6 cm and adjust the backrest by up to 6 cm. Brief is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather, also in two-tone. The armrests have hand-stitched upholstery. The five-spoke base is available in black lacquered or polished aluminium and can be fitted with various kinds of castors or slides. The President and Executive models are equipped with a “Syncron” system that enables the backrest and seat to oscillate and allows the user to adjust this movement. This system enables the chair to adjust to the user's body, supporting their movements and ensuring extraordinary comfort. The Meeting version comes with a swivel mechanism that returns the seat to its original position.
