Haworth's Newest Seating – Tetro & Very Enhancements

May 29, 2013

CHICAGO – June 13, 2011 – As part of significant new product offering, Haworth introduced a new seating back with innovative technology and seating enhancements at NeoCon 2011.

Low and high resolution photos are available on Haworth’s NeoCon 2011 media kit flash drive and by request.

Very® Seating with Tetro™ Back was designed by the Haworth Design Studio with an innovative technology that mixes materials to maximize comfort. Tetro’s state-of-the-art process merges comfort and strength, flexibility and ergonomics, and softness and durability into a high-performance, collaborative family. This new seating back gives the user the comfort of an upholstered chair with the cleanability and durability of a traditional plastic chair.

Enhancements to the Very Seating Family were designed by the Haworth Design Studio and Simon Desanta.  These additions expand the Very seating family with multi-function models, while maintaining the design integrity of the entire line. The additions extend Very’s application scope with stools for cafés, healthcare and education environments. Accessories such as a headrest for the Very Task chair, tablet arm, storage rack and ganging brackets are also available.
