TO1 CROSS CHAIR
Designed by PearsonLloyd for TAKT
2021 Jonathan Hindle Prize Winner - Furniture
The Cross Chair design emerged from a search for a form that would immediately communicate to the user how the design should be assembled, almost without instructions. Arriving as just four pieces of timber and six screws, the Cross Chair requires minimal assembly instruction and a single Allen key, helping the process to be as intuitive as possible and free from the frustration often found with flatpacks.

Keyn Chair Group
Designed by forpeople for Herman Miller
2017 Jonathan Hindle Prize Winner
When forpeople were given the design brief for the Keyn Chair Group, it was a challenge that seemed almost impossible. forpeople were asked to create a group of chairs that consist of a four-leg, cantilever and pedestal base each with or without the option of arms. Our challenge was how to resolve the design of each of these types without compromising aesthetic appeal or continuity across the group. At the same time Herman Miller wanted us to maximise the opportunity for shared componentry. forpeople’s solution was to create the chair using four key components, which include a common cradle and one piece seat and back shell, combined with a series of base options, and upholstery variants. Keyn’s patented CradleFlex movement responds as you shift your position. It effortlessly reclines up to 10 degrees whilst simultaneously allowing the seat to move forward.
