Chair of the Month Review: Swav by Keilhauer

WDM’s Chair of the Month is back with a new review! This December, we focused on another important area of the office for our first-ever conference room chair review as we worked from Swav by Keilhauer. 

Work Design Magazine’s Katie Sargent along with the design team at OTJ NYC collectively worked in the Swav Mid Back Conference Chair in conference room settings. Here’s their top takeaways from the experience.

Meet Swav by Keilhauer

A classic look with modern design elements; the Swav mid back conference chair mixes a sleek profile with unique design qualities to provide comfort and aesthetics, all in one! The chair is lightweight and has a medium-high back without obstructing the view of someone behind. The chair can easily go between boardroom meetings and everyday work, accommodating all your seating needs!

The Rundown

  • Key Features: The sleek profile of the chair has a unique insert that wraps around the chair back and seat. It also has extra width to accommodate all body types.
  • Chair Design: A knee-tilt mechanism makes the Swav chair ideal for everyday meetings and conference rooms.
  • Adjustable Options: Upholstered or urethane armcap options. Also available without arm rests as well as in lounge chair or stool form.
  • Fabric Options: A modern grid stitch detail is available in a variety of colors. The design of the chair allows for a secondary textile choice.
  • Sustainability Spotlight: The Swav mid-back conference chair carries BIFMA LEVEL® 2 and SCS Global Services certification for Indoor Air Quality at the Indoor Advantage™ Gold level. It is shipped from facilities that produce zero waste to landfill, and which offset 100% of electricity use with renewable energy credits.

What We Loved Most

Our reviewers were impressed with the width of the chair which accommodates all body types and seating styles (think criss-cross!). Even our petite reviewers didn’t feel lost in the chair, the proportions work for smaller and larger people. 

Great scaled chair for inclusivity 

The back angle of the chair is very supportive which allows Swav to be more than just a conference chair, it provides comfort that lasts all day! The seat cushion is also supportive and comfortable, while still providing a high end look with the materials. The angle of the arm is a nice design element, which fits perfectly underneath a standard table or desk at seated height.
