Black Dot Net from Sedus

Markus Dörner’s new range of Black Dot swivel chairs for Sedus are environmentally friendly with increased back support

Black Dot Net from Sedus


January 15th, 2013

Sedus are known for a philosophy of ergonomics that reacts against impersonal, draining work environments, and the key innovation of their new range, Black Dot Net, is in the backrest.


Their unique patented dorsokinetic mechanism maximises freedom of movement in all directions, while a flexible joint controls to give an ideal level of back support throughout movements as broad as backward leans or to the extreme left and right. The result is a chair that supports even the most extravagant yawners and stretchers.

Swivel chair with headrest

The seat is upholstered comfortably as is characteristic of all the iconic Black Dot range, but the backrest is covered by a light and transparent Wovenit® membrane, which is naturally soft, breathable and wrinkle-resistant. This comes in five colours, from stylish black or soft dark grey to strong red.

4-leg with armrests

Every Sedus innovation balances the aesthetic with the ergonomic, and as such the range of customisable options is vast. In addition to the swivel chair, the range includes a 4-leg model and a cantilever, and options include headrests, adjustable lumbar support (height and depth), adjustable armrests, stacking options, and all the tried and trusted mainstays of Sedus swivel chairs such as seat-depth springing, sliding seats, and the “Sedo-Lift” mechanism, the secret behind their chairs’ high wear resistance.

Simple 4-leg

Further aesthetic options include over one hundred different fabric and leather options for seat upholstery, and the chair base and frame can come in polished or chromed, or powder-coated in white aluminium or black. Despite the luxury of so many options, the chair is made from environmentally friendly materials, with the result that it’s almost completely recyclable (94%).
