Steelcase introduced new multipurpose Chair Cavatina at Orgatec
Last week a new edition of the yearly Orgatec fair took place. Steelcase used this week to introduce the new Steelcase Cavatina range. Steelcase Cavatina is a broad range of multifunctional chairs which are designed by co-creation between Steelcase and design studio Odo Fioravanti.
Now more than ever organisations need employees to be engaged, connected and on top of their creative game. And while workers are migrating away from their desk, today’s workplaces need to be more flexible than ever to address varying work styles and wellbeing needs.
“We’re observing a shift in how employees consider their work environment. Instead of going to their own personal desk workers move around much more and therefore every space could be a working space and so every chair could be a working chair. Cavatina is a chair that fits any occasion and can seamlessly from one setting to the next.”, says Alessandro Centrone, Vice President Marketing EMEA at Steelcase.
Cavatina’s design has been inspired by the simple and melodious air, the part of an opera which serves as a manifesto and gives the audience the promise of performance. Designer Odo Fioravanti translated these inspirations / ideas into the chair and created a flexible and customizable tool to furnish spaces. “I wanted to create a design that offers infinite combinations of functions, typologies, colours and fabrics. This way the chair blends with the high-end aesthetic seen in the modern workplace.”, says Fioravanti.
Cavatina is a diverse range of chairs. The distinctive waves on the backside of the chair may remind the user of a delicate shell and gives the product family a harmonious overall appearance. The variations of polypropylene, metal and wood support diverse functions and activities.
