Kane commented:

We wanted the design (of Cofi) to have a classic modern form, with the kind of quality and detailing that you would find on a beautifully crafted handbag or briefcase. Through its tailoring, slimness of form, and high quality elements — like polished aluminum arms and base — Cofi is an elegant and classic solution for exceptional seating needs.

Successful results: Finish options; lead times; price; high-and mid-back options; stitching + contrast options.

Sustainability practices were presented very thoughtfully/in detail

The details for for the backs on the low-, mid- and high-back are nice clean forms. This is an attractive chair that is comfortable to sit in at a great price point.

Appreciate that it’s made in Iowa — in the U.S.

Comfortable for use in conference rooms and executive offices.

Could be enhanced for further success: Even further concealed chair adjustments.

This is truly an aspirational product and a great step for HON. Great design, construction and price point! It makes a great impression!

Beautiful product with a price point that makes the product specifiable for so many. Every space deserves a beautiful conference chair and you have made this possible. Well done!

This high-back executive level chair was very comfortable. Economical price and sustainable product with the use of co-mold and excess fabric being repurposed for truck liners.
