The Keyn Chair with four-star pedestal base is an elegant addition to a work place. Designed with comfort in mind, Keyn’s sculpted back supports you from the moment you sit down. The highly patterned back ensures you remain cool and comfortable, no matter how long you are seated for. For extra comfort, Keyn responds to your every move, gently reclining as you adjust your posture.
Keyn Chair Group
Meetings are a constant feature of every office worker’s day. What’s missing from most of them, however, is a comfortable chair. Without one, people lose attention, become fatigued, and disengage. The same can be said for any place people gather to collaborate.
To address this problem, we worked with forpeople, a London-based design company, to create the Keyn Chair Group. A range of meeting and side chairs, the group offers natural comfort to support people as they move and change their posture during meetings, which is good for their minds and their bodies.
When you sit upright, Keyn provides instant comfort through the sculpted back. It remains in contact with your spine from the moment you sit down. As you shift and adjust your position, Keyn’s patented CradleFlex movement responds with you. It reclines smoothly up to 10 degrees whilst allowing the seat to move forward at the same time. You are supported as you change posture, which according to research can be as many as 53 times an hour, so you can be more comfortable and remain focused.
In addition to Keyn’s responsive comfort, the moulded seat back in the seat-pad version meets rigorous cleaning protocols. It features a tough yet flexible polymer material that makes it particularly relevant for high-traffic areas such as cafés. The chair’s detailed pattern not only contributes to its lightweight aesthetic but also provides ventilation to keep you cool as well as supported.

When approaching the design of the Keyn Chair Group, forpeople were determined that every version of the chair would retain the same visual appeal. To achieve this, they designed every chair in the group from only four key parts: base, cradle, seat shell, and a selection of upholstery options. The latter ranges from a simple seat-pad through to fully upholstered versions.
Together these four parts create a universally elegant aesthetic, which can be transformed through colour, material and finish choices to create a variety of styles for any space. Combine a clean white finish with fresh bright colours for a casual area. Choose a polished base and fully-upholstered leather for an executive feel. The reverse contrast option brings a burst of accent colour to a more restrained palette.
A design company that has partnered with Herman Miller since 2009, forpeople follows a design philosophy that is contained in its name. The people of forpeople believe that design is not an abstract, theoretical exercise. It is first and foremost for the people who use it. All of forpeople’s work – design for products, services, experiences – starts with how people feel, think and do. And it ends with improving people’s lives.

In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month
In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminium.
Vacuum fabric as needed using an upholstery attachment.
Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush.
Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.
