Designed with a residential feel but still holding on to the functionality needed for any workplace, Home offers a different look with feminine, soft, curves balanced with architectural style.

'Cicero' the new “Collaborative Chair” from Edge Design, is the evolutionary response to the co-working and agility based trend we now find within the modern working environment.

Cicero, for creative office and meeting. Cicero, making workplaces inspiring.

'Open' is a flexible and very practical modular seating system with subtle 90° or 60° curves allowing Edge Design to offer an alternative to the rectilinear solution giving designers more interesting shapes to work with and an ability to create dynamic meeting, touchdown working and concentration spaces.

High, low or with no back Open can be used in a very wide variety of locations: reception, co-working and agile working environments.

'Polka' is a flexible and fun modular seating range with soft curves and gentle waterfall seat edges. Its low wide stance and irregular shapes provide a striking alternative for sitting, relaxing and touchdown working.

Ideal for reception, atrium, break-out areas, schools, colleges and universities, Polka gives designers an exciting palette of soft shapes and striking colours to create outstanding and dynamic environments.


Boss Design


Boss Design is going back to its roots as it launches DNA - a stunning new executive lounge chair range. Taking engineered upholstery to a whole new level, this latest addition represents the most accomplished upholstery to date in the Boss Design.


An elegant piece of British craftsmanship, this wooden bench combines traditional frame builds with cut foam applications to explore intricate detailing on the timber, underframe and seat pad. Attention and careful consideration can be seen in the beautiful dowles along the edges of the timber, bringing the level of finesse that Lyndon is recognised for.


Its carefully contoured monoshell seat sits on a variety of base options, available in the Colours By Boss pallet, which distinguishes from other chairs in the portfolio. Saint TM was previewed at this year’s CDW with an official launch to follow in the summer.

'Hemm' = Home

A modular family with distinct profiles. Where comfort meets every day ergonomics. Where individual meets integrated. Where choice meets configuration. Designed for you, hemm is where work feels like home.

A holistic work lounge solution that transcends everyday distractions to offer people choice and better ways of working. Designed to encourage serendipity and nurture the flow of ideas and information. From solo working to four person booths, the slimline aesthetic and zip detail enables agile reconfiguration.



'Folk' is a mercurial, but modest family of chair, stool and table designed for Allermuir by PearsonLloyd. Its earthy implicity just feels right, like it’s a design that’s always been around.

A range of wood, plastic and metal finishes, different colours and upholstery options allow you to change Folk’s flavour so that it can appear like a range of different chairs that somehow sit together harmoniously in one space.

'Kin' is a family of elegantly strong mono-shell seating designed for Allermuir by PearsonLloyd. The range comprises a tub chair, an arm chair, a side chair and stool, but with myriad base, colour and plastic or upholstery options, the family
extends to multiple interlinked possibilities that will always bear a likeness to one other.



'Set Me' literally puts the power in the hands of the end user. With the occupant at the heart of the manufacture and design, SetMe is height adjustable and has connectivity built-in. Its elegant design and fluid mechanism make the desking system simple to use, thanks to the 200 moving parts hidden in the robust frame which allows for the top to glide smoothly to the preferred position.

'Lyft' - With its lightweight construction, rounded base and curved seat, the Lyft provides support and comfort with motion and mobility whether you want to sit for an extended period of time or just “perch.”

And as the Lyft stool is adaptable, as it can be raised from 533mm to 755mm, so it can fit everybody. With collaboration the name of the game in the modern work environment, Lyft is perfect for the impromptu meeting.

'Array' has been designed with these multiple audiences in mind. Whether you’re conferencing or training, Array is adapted so you can think, learn and work with ease. As the name suggests, Array is a multi-purpose, multi-use desking solution that can be used as a traditional, vertical work or meeting space, or can be used as a presentation or collaboration tool. The Array comes with in-built power connectivity, gas-powered flip mechanism and easily accessible cable management system, so your technology can come with you.



'Lasso' lends itself well for being used in clusters working particularly well in educational environments or public spaces. Individual power and data units can be easily incorporated into Lasso's triple stool allowing collaboration or private working, or even just an opportunity for users to charge phones within a public space.

'Hue’s face to face, two-person arrangement makes perfect use of awkward and narrow spaces in places such as corridors. These spaces are often found outside of meeting rooms, and Hue lends itself well to the warm up and cool down required before and after meetings. As an ideal retreat for team and project spaces, Hue can be positioned around the edges of a space, or when utilising the high screen, can be used to create smaller huddle spaces incorporating lower posture tables and chairs for a tiered environment.

Available as a bar height or standard height, with power and data and in a wide variety of fabricsand finishes, Hue comes with an additional screen option that allows the product to truly divide a space, as the screen finishes higher than is possible on standard high-backed sofas.

With a simple and broadly appealing form, generous upholstery and tilt mechanism, 'Viv Highback' and 'Viv Highback Lounge' offer superior comfort, launching the Viv range into a new realm.

You’ll also find new additions to the 'Fiji' range in Fiji sofa, and to the 'Always' range in the Always barstool and Always counter height.
