Think of comfort as being the absence of awareness. This is the case with Eina stacking chair, a chair that wins the "sit test" time and time again. With a wide variety of potential uses, the versatility of Eina stacking chairs constitutes its raison d’être and is reinforced by more than 2 million Eina stacking chairs having been sold worldwide. The concept of Eina was to create an ergonomically correct yet very comfortable chair with great versatility in form and use. The virtues of Eina stacking chairs include high strength and easy adaptability, which is why it is found in a wide variety of applications such as commercial offices, hospitality, education, auditoriums, airports and health where a high continuous use requires a robust product. Eina stacking chairs are available with or without arms, with polypropylene seats for easy maintenance or upholstered in any fabric for a more luxurious feel. Even with arms, the Eina stacking chair allows for sufficient space and comfort to suit most body types. The Eina stacking armchair is regularly selected for applications where access and egress to the chair is difficult for seniors. The Eina stacking armchair is quite stable and the arms provide perfect ergonomics for access and egress.
In 2008, KE-ZU launched a collection of designer furniture suitable not only for the aesthetically conscious elderly at home and but also health and aged care facilities including hospitals, nursing homes, serviced apartments and retirement complexes. For many years, Andreu World has customised different standard furniture products to meet the special needs of aged care. These customised products are now known collectively as the Seniors Collection and are installed in homes, hospitals, aged care facilities and medical centers throughout the world. Standard furniture products are altered in varying ways to suit differing needs whilst maintaining the aesthetic design integrity enabling this furniture to look in place in any design environment. Modifications include extended arms for greater stability during access and egress, increased seat heights, head or should support, rounded profile edges etc. Andreu World furniture for seniors and aged care facilities is designed to increase comfort and independence for people with restricted movement and mobility due to illness, age or disability without compromising on award winning designs. Numerous design modifications are also available upon request depending on the volumes involved. The natural beauty of wood adds a new dimension to health care seating needs. Timber arms are easy to clean and add functionality to designer chairs for the aged. An Andreu World seniors dining chair can be incorporated un-noticed around a dining table at home with standard Andreu World dining chairs so that seniors don’t appear to have special needs. The Andreu World Seniors collection includes dining chairs for seniors, lounge chairs for seniors, foot stools and ottomans, tables and patient visitor chairs with or without head rests.
Andreu World not only addresses the social quality of life issues for aged care, but is committed to improving our environment. Andreu World holds UKAS Environmental Management certification to ISO 14001 certified by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance [LRQA] and FSC chain of custody. FSC and ISO 14001 is one of the most effective ways to minimise environmental risks, meet legislative requirements and demonstrate corporate governance through the implementation of an environmental management system (EMS).
