Meet Klimastuhl, the chair that can warm you up or cool you down

Friday 16th February, 2018

Temperature at work affects productivity and job satisfaction – perhaps to many of you this claim won’t come as a surprise, but now it’s also supported by research. However, it’s not so easy to find an optimal temperature for everyone, as we all have our own thermal preferences, and the room temperature in the office is often a compromise. One particular BBC article reveals that around 2% of office hours in the UK are wasted in disputes about climate control, costing the economy over £13 billion per year.

Now meet Klimastuhl – the first office chair with a patented climate function – which could put an end to the battle for the office thermostat. This innovative office chair allows you to regulate its seat and backrest temperature to warm you up or cool you down. You can finally work in your optimal conditions and be your most productive self.

The chair comes with a cable-free rechargeable Li-Ion battery and a charger. The battery run-time is up to 16 hours, and charging time is approximately 4 hours. The climate function in heating mode warms to a maximum of 37 degrees Celsius, which is equivalent to the human body temperature. The ventilation function helps conduct heat away from the body, as well as allowing for moisture to evaporate from the seat and backrest. When the user stands up, the climate function automatically switches off to save energy, and then it switches back on when the user sits down.

Klimastuhl is manufactured by Klöber, a company with over 80-year track record in the development, design and production of office chairs that promote healthy and dynamic seating. All Klöber products are made in Germany by a team of engineers, designers and production specialists who work closely together, from the initial concept through to production. Klöber believe that long product life is one of the essential elements of good design, so they use materials of the highest quality to build their innovative office chairs.
