Nienkämper NOW®

Today’s boardrooms, meeting rooms and private offices need affordable and contemporary conference seating.

The Nienkämper NOW® chair is designed to give the user an unusual level of comfort and ergonomics with a minimal amount of mechanical features. The tightly tailored upholstery components speak to the historical connection to fine upholstery that Nienkämper has been renowned for. The contrast between fine leathers and highly polished aluminum make this design particularly compatible with existing conference table collections. The Nienkämper NOW® Chair embodies contemporary aesthetics that comfortably work in any professional business environment.

The Nienkämper NOW® chair is based on the latest in research and design for ergonomic seating. No adhesives are used in the construction. All materials in the construction can be easily separated for rework, recovery or recycling. Smart options like height and back adjustments, a choice of base, caster, adjustable base mechanisms and upholstery materials give this product a wide range of potential uses in any corporate environment. The Nienkämper NOW® chair has many options for learning centers and fixed seating.

When cleaning Nienkämper leathers, use a soft clean damp cloth and a mild solution of non detergent soap, such as Ivory or Palmolive, to wash the item. The cloth must be damp, not dripping wet. Dry with a clean soft cloth, blotting any excess moisture away. Leave to dry naturally, do not use heat to dry the surface. A thorough cleaning with a fine leather milk product is recommended on an annual basis to add natural oils to the leather to keep it soft and supple.

In time all leather takes on a patina and spills generally blend into the leather giving a piece of furniture a personal character. Whenever a more serious accident occurs, please contact a leather care specialist.
