Total support is a beautiful thing.
Catches your eye. And has your back.
Ceres seating began with scientific research on how people sit. The end result is a superior sitting experience-and a stylish, beautiful chair. The aesthetic integrity of form that follows function gives Ceres its clean, purposeful appearance. Its contours and shape exist to support you completely as you move throughout your workday. As a bonus, Ceres also has the aesthetic flexibility to reflect just the right personality for practically any workplace environment.
In the studio of Ceres designer Wolfgang Deisig, every new concept begins with a question: What can be improved? With Ceres, Deisig set out to improve the back support delivered by work chairs. He conducted motion studies of how people sit and revealed a gap in support as they recline. The kinesthetic design of Ceres addresses this problem, keeping the backrest in constant contact with your lumbar as you sit upright, recline, or move between postures

Leading Office Furniture Manufacturer Has
Long History of Environmental Responsibility
Muscatine, IA – April 15, 2008 – Sustainability and environmental responsibility are increasingly important issues in today’s society. At The HON Company, the second-largest office furniture manufacturer in North America, conserving raw materials is not a new concept. In fact, it’s something the company has been doing since its inception.
“More than fifty years ago, HON made recipe card boxes from pieces of scrap metal generated from our contract business,” says Mindy Billingsley, environmental marketing manager. “Today, we practice one of the industry’s strongest and most comprehensive programs to conserve raw materials and reduce waste.”
Beyond HON’s dedication to sustainability in product design, the company also has a number of programs in place to save the Earth’s resources. Having adopted the old adage, “waste not, want not,” back in 1947, it remains part of HON’s DNA and has shaped the company’s ongoing pursuit of environmental stewardship.
