“IN” recently received a Gold Award at NeoCon in Chicago for its mix of innovative mechanics, high-tech seat and 3D Formstrick (form-fit knit). The office chair’s athletic design has now also won over the judges of the renowned “German Design Award” 2016 .

In addition to the praise given to IN, Wilkhahn also received a special mention for its new website in the category entitled “excellent communications design – digital media and online”. The judges decided that the online platform, designed by Cybay New Media GmbH for Wilkhahn, reflected Wilkhahn’s concept of form and function. They also commented that the attractive design looked contemporary on all standard devices in a range of different backdrops.
The 2-component technology with plastic injection-moulded seat and backrest have been applied for the first time here. The result is a chair that’s a combination of both very firm and very elastic areas. “For plastic experts it’s a real triumph. Equally impressive is the form-fit knit backrest with different thicknesses and elasticity. It acts as a lumbar support and is an exceptional design feature
