What do you do when you’ve designed something good? You make it even better. Enter a leaner, lighter, more responsive Mirra.
31 May, 2013
Ten years and more than 1.5 million chairs later, Mirra has been redesigned for today’s dynamic workplace. The result is Mirra 2.
Designed by Studio 7.5, Mirra 2 is a highly responsive chair that offers an intimate connection where the person and the chair move as one.
The secret lies in the chair’s highly responsive and intuitive Butterfly Back™, which is made from a new method of merging a fabric layer with polymer veins.
The hybrid structure is shaped for dynamic support to ensure that the body is kept in healthy alignment. Combined with a new loop spine, enhanced passive PostureFit™ and independently adjustable lumbar support, Mirra 2’s back design is incredibly responsive to the body’s slightest movements and need for support.
The highly breathable back incorporates the same fabric used in technical clothing to avoid heat and moisture buildup. Mirra 2 is also 25 per cent lighter than the original yet can accommodate a person weighing up to 150kg.
And when it comes to aesthetics, Mirra 2 is a lean design with a sophisticated profile. It is also available in an added selection of textile and back colours along with new options for base finishes.
Studio 7.5 says, “By rethinking every component of the chair we were able to improve its performance and reduce its carbon footprint by 25 per cent. We took something good and made it even better.”
