CYPRESS, Calif. June 9, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–SitOnIt® Seating has earned one Platinum and two Gold Awards at the 2014 Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX).
In the last 20 years, ADEX has become the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.
“The 2013-14 ADEX Awards attracted upwards of 500 companies submitting more than 2,000 innovative new products,” said John Platter, executive director of ADEX. “The ADEX Award has recognized many outstanding product designs over the years, and SitOnIt Seating has earned its place among that elite group.”
Cutting-edge design and the ability to personalize frame, arm and mesh color combinations make Platinum winner Torsa™ the natural preference for a fresh, clean style. The innovative cable-driven synchro mechanism with Comfort Drive™ allows easy fingertip adjustment from a seated position. And remarkably, excellent ergonomics come standard with adjustable lumbar support and seat depth adjustment.
Sleek, aerodynamic lines give the Amplify® collection power, with a look of modern design and sumptuous comfort. This affordable task chair features adjustable lumbar bands that provide optimum ergonomics. The black nylon frame and upholstered seat ensure both contoured support and enduring comfort with this Gold-level winner.
Adjustable lumbar support, height adjustable arms and multiple mesh colors are unexpected standard features given the surprisingly low price of the Wit® collection. This smart, Gold-award winning task chair has a pull handle for easy mobility. Wit was conceived with equal portions of design, comfort and value in mind, making this ergonomic chair perfectly suited for task, conference and collaboration environments.
“We are deeply honored and appreciate the recognition ADEX has awarded to three new SitOnIt Seating products,” said Paul DeVries, Co-Founder & CEO of SitOnIt Seating and IDEON®. “We’ve listened to the design community and worked hard to incorporate exceptional design into our products. The ADEX Platinum Award for the Torsa task chair and the two Gold awards for the Amplify and Wit chairs validate those efforts and underscore our belief that smart design, excellent comfort and affordability is of significant value to the A&D community and the great work that they do.”
All of the entries in each of the ADEX categories have potential for three award levels of platinum, gold or silver. Judges awarded points based on form, function, value and fitness for particular purpose. Total points earned determined each winner’s award level. All Platinum, Gold and Silver level products will be published in the 2014 ADEX Winners Edition and be featured all year on designjournalmag.com.
