Trea Designed by Todd Bracher
The Red Dot-Award winning Trea teams a timeless, clean aesthetic with high-performance function. Created in collaboration with visionary designer Todd Bracher, Trea offers intuitive comfort by mimicking the instinctive recline of the human body and embracing the sitter in a supportive shell.
Trea can be adapted for both office and home interiors. The chair’s four-star, cantilever or four-leg bases are interchangeable, so Trea can be customized for different environments and uses while maintaining visual consistency throughout a space.
Trea is engineered with a unique solid state recline mechanism that offers the sitter 12 degrees of movement. The chair’s overall modular design makes it easy to upgrade and maintain each of its components, minimizing the environmental impact.
Trea’s waterfall-edge seat reduces impact to the back of the knees. A contoured backrest gently pivots to follow the natural point of hip rotation, cradling the body’s curves for lumbar support. The sitter can move freely and comfortably, without adjusting any mechanisms or dials.
Inspired by simple, natural forms, the Trea chair features a sophisticated design that embodies versatility. Functionally flawless and aesthetically pure, Trea offers the most comfort with the least amount of effort, providing stylish support in any space.
“I wanted to design a multipurpose chair with a visual simplicity and unique recline mechanism that would allow it to be used anywhere and by anyone.”
Todd Bracher, Designer
As the line between home and office blurs, workplace design is increasingly informed by residential design. Visionary Designer Todd Bracher’s response to this new era is Trea. While creating this unique multipurpose chair, he investigated how nature had solved the problem of integrated articulation. He was inspired by the lobster shell: an exoskeleton that moves in harmony with the living organism it protects. By following the cues of this natural design, he arrived at a solution that perfectly responds to the human body’s desire to move and recline, without knobs, dials, and levers: a groundbreaking “solid state” recline mechanism that adapts seamlessly and intuitively to sitters of all sizes. The final product is a universal chair that speaks a design language at once modern and timeless.
