Haworth Very Task Chair
Groundbreaking Ergonomics, Beautiful Design, and Leading Environmental Stewardship
The Very Task balances craft with technology and clean geometry with contour and comfort. This task chair is equipped with our patented asymmetrical lumbar support, and the breatheable suspension mesh back is built to react in ways your body specifically needs for optimal comfort.
Very is as at-home in your residence as it is at HQ. Proven quality and durability make Very a mainstay feature in boardrooms, while the superior comfort and timeless design make it a favorite for the home office. Whether fully loaded with 4D arms and Lumbar, or configured with fixed arms and no lumbar to highlight it's minimal form.
Very is also made with the earth in mind. It is constructed in the USA with more than 60% recycled material, and it's 98% recyclable. When you’re ready to part with Very several years down the road, you will be able to disassemble Very within 20 minutes. Or, we’ll be happy to recycle it for you.
"We wanted to give the chair a controlled presence to create a balance between simplicity, function, and expression." Micheal Welsh - Haworth Store
Whether you prefer classic or colorful, bright or dark, polished or plastic, this chair is able to satisfy your very unique palette. With 10 fabrics, 5 leathers and 6 meshes to choose from, the possibilities are endless. Not quite sure? Select one of our in-house designers' top picks or go ahead and make up your own creation with our "Customize Your Chair" option.
Maximum Innovation. Minimal Form.
Ok it's not magic but "tons and tons of engineering" isn't an alliteration. Your back isn't a flat board, and your chair shouldn't treat it that way. Our tuned mesh is woven and stretched using a propriety process that provides an adapting surface to fit the organic shape of your spine. Outfit Very with our asymmetrical lumbar to turn Very Task into an ergonomists dream. Our patented lumbar support is not only unique, but necessary- about 70% of users in the research done by the Human Performance Institute at Western Michigan University prefer having more support on one side of their spine.
"The chair's overall design is a composition of a dynamic visual, responding to the physical movement, offering an intuitive and inviting experience"
When Michael Welsh and Nicolai Czumaj-Bront began creating the design for Very, they set out to make a chair that worked with architecture, unlike many of its competitors. Very incorporates consistent architectural forms that make the chair look beautiful in every setting. At its profile, the Very Task is as sleek and sharp as they come. Its sophisticated body, dressed in any of our premium materials, creates a distinct look that is impossible to find anywhere else. More than just looks, good design is functional and lasting; Very is backed by our industry leading 12 year, 24/7, multiple shift warranty. We aren' the only ones who think that Very Task is gorgeous. It is the winner of the GOOD Design Award, IDEA Gold Award, Reddot Design Award, FX International Interior Design Award, and is Greenguard Gold and BIFMA Level 3 certified.
