The Sonato collection promotes safety and security – two central considerations in the healthcare sector. Sonato consists of a seating and table collection. The seating elements include a chair, armchair, bench, reclining chair and footstool. The chairs are available in standard back or highback with optional grip hole for easy handling. Available with or without arms. Two arm options are available, straight and a version with a helpful pommel to assist in standing up. Thanks to the modern laminated plywood technology, the Sonato collection offers a high degree of resilience without comprising aesthetic appeal. There is also a hygiene advantage with an optional detachable seat cover making it easy to clean. The high-back chair with deep seat mould, offers a particular level of comfort, so that sitting down and getting up requires only little effort and pleasantly supporting the shoulder area. A reclining chair and stool is also available that makes the collection particularly suitable for an application in the care and health sector. The series also includes an armchair and a bench that is fully upholstered, providing even more seating comfort. Complimenting the seating collection is a series of tables including a central-column and four-legged table in different sizes and finishes. The four-legged tables also allow for ease of access for wheelchair users. The collection is perfectly suited to cafeterias and common rooms.
