Klöber has its origins in the pioneering spirit of the 1930s. Margarete Klöber founded a factory for healthy seating in 1935, which championed the idea of sitting in healthy comfort in the office. In the first incarnation of dynamic sitting, she supported the seat and backrest on springs. At the time, this bold idea was completely innovative in the office world and was the result of a passion for health and comfort paired with consistency in manufacture.
Care for the well-being of the user in the workplace has remained the driving force behind Klöber’s product development. The idea of healthy sitting for all, the search for maximum comfort and the resourceful combination of new technologies are what the brand is all about.
Klöber delivers health and comfort at work. In the 1950s, inspired by the spirit of the times, organic forms also ensured an upright posture at the desk. Upholstery was a welcome addition to the chairs and the backrest was given its own mechanism in order to support movement.
The 1970s gave the office swivel chair not only hydraulic height adjustment but also the plastic shells that were so typical of the times.
Klöber responded to the boom of the 1980s with a true classic, called Connex. The striking triangle on the backrest and the central seam became hallmarks of the brand. Connex was popular with many outfitters and is still to be found in banks and public buildings.
The turn of the century marked the consistent optimisation of the useful functions of dynamic sitting. Health and comfort are of equal importance to product development. A focus that is formally expressed in comfortable volume and flowing forms.
Office seating from Klöber encourages a variety of uses for a contemporary way of working. It enhances performance and efficiency in the long-term. It expresses individual style with the reliability of proven quality and cultivates the pleasant feeling of familiarity.
