Swurve is a light and sculptural conference chair with an ergonomic textile back, upholstered seat and cast aluminum frame. The design was inspired by the genius of nature and how organic forms create perfect solutions to specific challenges. The chair's sinuous frame forms the armature for the back, blends to becomes the arms, and sweeps down and around to join with the seat. A patented tilt mechanism is carefully integrated into the chair’s aluminum structure. Two textile options for the back include a breathable knit, available in 22 colours, and a leather or leather alternative with horizontal stitching. Swurve’s aluminum frame and base are available with a polished finish or in 5 powder coat paint colours. Swurve presents a welcoming, soft aesthetic for offices and meeting rooms.

Designed in collaboration with and manufactured by Keilhauer, the company has taken every possible step to reduce carbon emissions: from sustainable sourcing materials, and responsible manufacturing, to a carefully thought through end-of-life and recyclability plan. Where carbon emissions remain, like with transportation, Keilhauer is investing in carbon reduction and climate change mitigation projects to offset. Swurve’s environmental footprint is reviewed by third-party lifecycle assessment conforming to ISO 14044 with cradle to gate scope. Every Swurve sold will produce net-zero carbon emissions.
