Jeté

Nominee

Via Seating is proud to present “Jeté”, a collaboration between Gensler as product design consultant and Via Seating’s own Studio V. Jeté is beautiful graceful motion with slimline elegance, signature comfort and sustainable innovation. The slimline silhouette offers a sophisticated, contemporary profile presented in high and mid back forms. Its scale and subtle form allow for a broad range of upholstery applications from basic grade fabric to leather to organic naturals. The look is further extenuated by unique shadow tufting, parallel & box hand-sewn patterns, each with optional emphasized stitch.

Within Jeté’s single shell frame is a surprisingly robust, single layer of injection-molded foam over intuitive, integrated, backflex bands. Paired with Jeté’s true knee tilt mechanism supporting natural recline with zero-foot-rise, this chair optimizes flexibility and relaxation. Further, Jeté’s arm detail provides support with discreet profile further enhancing its side visual. Jeté delivers an uncompromising look & feel from headrest to caster.

Leap ahead into the solace & beauty of today's quintessential executive-conference chair, Jeté.

The Design Process

Our newest chair, Jeté⁠—designed in collaboration with Gensler and Via Seating's design team, Studio V⁠—is a culmination of innovation, design, and comfort. It delivers surprisingly incredible comfort within its thin silhouette by integrating a unique support structure with metal frame construction all embedded inside our proprietary, injection-molded comfort foam.  Further, its Italian designed knee-tilt control supports the natural body position even when in full recline while allowing the feet to stay firmly on the floor.

Jeté achieves a sophisticated, forward-thinking look across its mid & high back. It offers choice of a standard shadow tufting stitch & unique, box stitch, which are all handmade by our skilled artisans. To its sides, designers can specify choice of armless or multiple black and polished fixed arms styles. It bases deliver with standard low-profile and signature high-profile bases with open-design casters. From any angle, Jeté does not disappoint.

Limited Water Usage: Water is a precious commodity for everyone, especially in the high desert valley surrounding Sparks, Nevada –  our home base. With this in mind, we figured out how to eliminate all H2O beyond the measured amount we use to steam wrinkles out of the final, upholstered product. On our models without upholstered seats, no water is used in the manufacturing process.

Safe Product Usage: We at Via Seating are committed to using products that are safe for the environment as well as the individuals who use them. As a standard practice in our dFe program, we work consistently to identify hazardous chemicals and eliminate them from our products.
