The Shortcut Collection

“Work looks a lot different now than it did ten years ago. Technology and the pace of modern life continue to push the boundaries of the workplace as we know it, and sometimes the best balance for that complexity is simplicity. We set out to create a chair with beautiful elements and uncompromising comfort—nothing more, nothing less.” – Markus McKenna, Director, Global Design
