GREEN BAY, Wisc. (Jan. 15) -- KI Furniture's new Sway Lounge Chair received awards for innovation and a state-of-the-art product from the Association of Rotational Molders, a leading plastics trade group, at its most recent annual meeting.
"These are tremendous honors for Sway and for us at KI," said Shawn Green, Vice President of Design and Product Marketing of KI Furniture. "Our team put a lot of thought into designing the most comfortable lounge chairs on the market. It's gratifying to be recognized for that effort."
Sway adjusts to users' preferred seating positions, with a 360-degree swivel. A person can sit back to relax, lean forward to focus, or turn to any side. The chair also features a high back, contoured shape, and full-body cushioning for maximum comfort.
Made by Dutchland Plastics for KI, the chair is ideal for universities in lounge areas, libraries, and study zones, as well as shared spaces in business environments. Sway is also part of a larger collection that includes a coordinating lounge table and ottoman.
ARM isn't the first group to honor Sway. Last year, the chair was named Innovative Product of the Year at NeoCon, the contract furniture industry's top trade show. Sway has also been featured in top publications, including the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business, Contract, Interior Design, and Architect.
"Lounges are often transitional spaces, where people only sit to wait for a few minutes," Green said. "Not anymore -- thanks to Sway. Those who avail themselves of its responsive, superior comfort may never want to get up."
