KI Introduces Dōni Seating: The Ultimate in Design Freedom and Comfort at NeoCon 2016

June 13, 2016

CHICAGO -  KI introduces its Dōni Seating Collection at the NeoCon® World's Trade Fair 2016 (#1181), the latest collaboration between KI and longtime design partner Giancarlo Piretti. The Dōni seating collection celebrates color and comfort. Ergonomically designed, Dōni has the appearance of a single-piece shell, with a simple hip-articulation mechanism, back flex and body-conforming curves. Perfectly balancing style and comfort, Dōni encourages design freedom through the support of custom matched, two-tone options, as well as a wide selection of base styles to address virtually any application.

“Dōni lets designers do what they do best-use their creativity to provide customized seating solutions for multi-faceted markets, including education, corporate, healthcare and more,” said Shawn Green, vice president, design and product marketing, KI.

In the world of stack seating, Dōni is truly unique. It is the only stack chair made in North America to combine hip-articulating comfort with standard two-tone color options. Two-tone shells enhance visual appeal, encourage design expression, and provide branding opportunities for universities, corporations, sports teams, and more. Unique guest chair bases present a fresh look and expanded material offering. Dōni is available in 13 solid and 9 two-tone colors as standard, but offers custom color matching and personalized color combinations.

Dōni's simple mechanism provides 17-degrees of backrest articulation and movement. The shell is created using a sophisticated two-shot injection molding process. KI is the only manufacturer in the United States to offer this two-shot process.

Built for long-lasting function and durability, Dōni is tested and warranted to a 300-pound weight limit and exceeds ANSI/BIFMA testing standards. Dōni's flex mechanism is designed to withstand the rigors of hard use and KI provides a 15-year warranty.

KI manufactures innovative furniture and wall system solutions for education, healthcare, government and corporate markets. The employee-owned company is headquartered in Green Bay, Wis. and operates sales offices and manufacturing facilities in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia. KI tailors products and service solutions to the specific needs of each customer through its unique design and manufacturing philosophy. For more information, visit
