Design Story

The Ignition Chair from HON is one of their flagship office chair products. It's comfortable, ergonomic, stylish, customizable, and utterly unique. Mixing classic forms and style with contemporary body science and the latest in fabrics and materials, this is a chair for the 21st century office.

When the designers at HON sat down to build the next generation of office chairs, they had a set of ideas to work from. They wanted to make a chair that could truly be for everyone - a chair that could seat all comers and make them all equally comfortable. Gone are the days when office chairs were made for a specific size and then marketed to all. The Ignition Chair is built to comfortably and ably support all body types, from the 5th percentile to the 95th.

No matter who you are or where you work, the Ignition Chair is for you. They also wanted to build a chair that was as attractive and iconic as any classic chair, yet maintained the science-driven forward thinking of the modern performance chair. The elegant mesh back of the chair is reminiscent of mid-century furniture like the Eames Aluminum Group Chairs - but with an added dash of ergonomic know-how and precise craftsmanship, this chair is supremely comfortable as well as supremely stylish. They also wanted to build a chair that was adjustable and customizable - after all, who knows better than the user the most comfortable ways for them to sit, to work, and to move? That's why they added a raft of control features, all easily controlled through a series of discrete levers and knobs on the side of the chair.

Another priority was to keep the price point on the chair low - a chair as revolutionary as the Ignition Chair isn't meant only for corner offices. This is a chair for everyone, and the affordable price point is also one of its biggest and most impressive selling points.

To sum up - the Ignition Chair is an affordable, personalized, ergonomic, adaptable, flexible, beautiful office chair. What more could you want?

The Ignition Chair pictured above is the mid-back version, which is a good one-size-fits-all setting for the back of the chair. You can, as always, customize the product to better fit your personal needs.

Address the needs of your entire office with one stylish, affordable seating solution platform that's easy to add to you as your needs grow. That's the beauty of Ignition -- it fits who you are, how you work, and where you work. Today and tomorrow.
