Numo: a chair with a classic, timeless design and surprisingly innovative technology. The core of the Numo is an Aeris kinematics system consisting of four flex points between the frame and the plastic seat shell made of high-quality polyamide. Thanks to this sophisticated movement mechanism, the chair follows the natural forward and backwards movements of its users so they can sit as they like, bringing movement into everyday sedentary life. The option of a matching, ergonomically shaped seat cushion allows the same comfort, even when seated for longer periods of time.
The versatility of the contract chair is another plus. The elegant design and four different frame variants – skid frame, wooden legs, a gliding base or a roller base – make it suited for use in a variety of spaces, such as meeting and waiting rooms, restaurants, lounges, or at the dinner table. The skid frame variant is even suitable for outdoor use.
The Numo is also available in five colours – white, blue, yellow, orange and black – allowing for multiple individual design options. Both colour-matched or contrasting non-slip seat cushions can be added to offer further combinations.
Designed exclusively for Aeris by Andreas Ostwald and made in Germany, it is a surprisingly versatile, dynamic design for a high-quality chair. Simple pleasure – that’s Numo.
