The Konfurb Orbit chair by Buro stands out as a beacon of playful design in an ever-evolving workplace landscape. Versatile and packed with design intent, the Konfurb Orbit documents Buro’s continued dedication to setting new standards of comfort and style in the workplace.
Internationally acclaimed architect and designer Mac Stopa, the creative power behind the Konfurb Orbit, has brought his signature touch to this remarkable chair. With a background marked by collaboration with global giants such as Google, Samsung, and BMW, Mac Stopa’s design philosophy marries mathematics, geometry, and a passion for modularity.
His work spans a range of design disciplines, from industrial and interior design to graphic design and art. The result? Innovative and adaptable objects which will respond with fluidity to the challenges of the future.
The Konfurb Orbit, created with the modern worker and innovative professional in mind, boasts a minimalist yet striking design. Its dominant ‘wing’ style armrests not only provide support but also nod to a sense of flight – soaring towards success. The Konfurb Orbit is a masterpiece of simplicity with the ability to blend seamlessly into various settings – including relaxation spaces, reception areas, and informal workplace meeting spaces.
Engineered for informal and relaxed environments, the Konfurb Orbit offers a unique minimalist design. Its clean lines and discreet technical features set it apart as a hedonic and stylish seating solution coated in sleek, customisable aesthetics. Three stunning colour options – Charcoal, Rust and Olive – lend it the ultimate design flexibility for various office or home spaces.
The Konfurb Orbit’s versatility is everything. Constructed with premium materials – including a sustainable metal frame – the Konfurb Orbit is both lightweight and durable. The chair’s high-quality fabric and foam ensure a comfortable seating experience, while the 5-star swivel base with height adjustable mechanism and locking tilt makes it an ideal choice for shorter working sessions or informal meetings, which demand more support and adjustability than traditional visitor chairs can deliver.
The Konfurb Orbit represents a futuristic fusion of form and function in workplace seating. With its sleek design, adjustability, and support, it caters to the changing needs of modern workplaces and shared spaces. With the Konfurb Orbit, Buro continues to empower individuals to work well and live better through innovative furniture solutions.
