2022 GOOD DESIGN Award Winners 01/23/2023

9to5 Seating has been honored with four 2022 GOOD DESIGN® Awards for HÅG SoFi, Ellie, Vox, and Dash. Granted by The Chicago Athenaeum in 1950, the prize recognizes innovative industrial, product, and graphic designs worldwide. Four GOOD DESIGN Awards is an unprecedented honor for 9to5 Seating.

Founded in Chicago in 1950 by pioneers Charles and Ray Eames and former MoMA curator Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN spotlights work that has “chartered new directions and pushed the envelope for competitive products in the world marketplace.”

Winning products HÅG SoFi, Ellie, Vox and Dash collectively represent the creative direction 9to5 Seating is taking in design while addressing the needs of the market. The HÅG SoFi combines two market drivers in a single product: clean aesthetics and groundbreaking engineering. The HÅG SoFi provides ventilation and gives a sense of space thanks to its transparency, making it ideal for space planning. Ergonomic features include adjustable seat depth, padded adjustable lumbar, the intuitive HÅG in Balance mechanism, and innovative SlideBack™ armrests that slide back to allow users to get closer to their desks, sit sideways or use the armrests as elbow support.

Ellie is a designer’s dream combining task-seating-level ergonomics with plush lounge comfort, merging functionality with an appealing design. With many base and finish options, Ellie in mid-back or high-back complements any workspace from corporate settings to open-concept offices or at-home work.
