Product Watch: Trinetic by Boss Design
Renowned for its pioneering advances in office furniture design, Boss Design continues to innovate with the unveiling of Trinetic at Clerkenwell Design Week – a unique task chair that incorporates a brand new type of movement to create a superior and completely natural user experience. With tangible ergonomic and commercial benefits, Trinetic will be the benchmark against which future task chairs are compared.

Trinetic has no manual user adjustments. Instead, it uses three independent pivot points that combine to create a chair that ‘follows’ rather than resists the user. This promotes better support through a wide range of body movements, and has been proven to increase contact with the user’s body through the full length of the seat and back surface compared to traditional synchronised mechanisms. This provides greater comfort and encourages a more dynamic user experience.
Boasting a sophisticated and refined aesthetic, Trinetic is built around an aluminium cradle, which can be finished in a wide array of styles. It can be supplied in any combination of mesh, fabric or leather seat and backrest, together with a choice of four and five-star base options. It is ideal for those who want a task chair, but can also be specified as a touchdown work, meeting or conference chair.
Commenting on this groundbreaking development, Mark Barrell, Design Director at The Boss Design Group says: “Trinetic is set to revolutionise office task chairs as we know them, and represents a significant investment for our company.
“There are many ergonomic benefits to the product: improved contact and support; better pressure distribution and a better fit for a broad range of user shapes and sizes, without placing the emphasis on the user to make any adjustments. The absence of a lockable backrest also encourages users to remain dynamic; avoiding static postures – the primary cause of musculoskeletal stress,” adds Mark.
He continues: “Commercially, Trinetic also demonstrates tangible advantages by reducing the need for training – a significant financial burden to clients and manufacturers alike – as this model has no manual user adjustments. Instead, the Trinetic video can be uploaded onto our clients’ intranets in order to educate users of the product’s benefits.”
Trinetic is visually and functionally unique, and is the perfect chair to facilitate flexible working. The product is certified as a task chair against EN 1335 Part 1 and ISO 9241, as well as being accredited with FIRA’s ‘Ergonomic Excellence’ Award.
