Crafting a Standard of Excellence Over Time
Developing the CEE Chair
Our first hanging chair had as its frame a 44-inch diameter steel hoop hanging at a 30-degree tilt. CEE Chair developer Jan Buckman used macramé techniques to create a taut webbing surface. This early work was a hanging chair that was perfect for kids and dogs, but not for anyone else. It looked cool, but was anything but comfortable.
Jan’s good friend Kurt Buetow’s Sky Chair inspired the current design of the CEE Chair. His concept used a steam-bentwood armature to maintain a comfortable seat shape. With Kurt’s permission, Jan made further refinements in technical design and advanced materials.
A Gentle and Soothing Wrap
The Chair’s Unique Embrace
You may just plop down in your CEE Chair, but there are other ways to seat yourself. Remember the long ago sunny days with friends on the swing set? You might try backing into your chair and let it rise to meet you like a swing. Let your feet go and you’ll get that gentle swoosh forward. The difference is that instead of the blunt encounter with gravity, you will experience the chair’s unique embrace, thanks to its fabric’s wrapping support right at your lumbar region. You will also notice the seat taking on your shape rather than you having to conform to the shape of the seat. You are experiencing a gentle and soothing wrap.
