It’s the remix to Ignition,
you know HON’s on a mission
to keep you rollin’ at work
and have all your coworkers wishin’
their chairs were made here at HON.
That’s how we get things done.
Seating is evolving, baby, your workday’s about to get fun…

Ok, I had to! But even the most perfect parody song doesn’t tell the full story of the evolution of Ignition.  As HON’s best-selling seating line, it seemed an impossible feat to find even one way to make it better (let alone over 10, but who is counting?). But HON knew that, if the workplace was evolving, its furniture needed to evolve with it.

1336-1351-1003_Hon Ignition_Open area_1Ignition was first introduced in 2009 as an all-in-one seating solution to provide the perfect fit for every body type, work style and office activity. HON recognized that personalized comfort energizes a workforce, and this idea quickly sparked new designs that ignited a movement toward a host of ergonomic and aesthetic enhancements to help you work better.

Why personalization? The ability to personalize Ignition 2.0 is how we deliver your perfect fit. Take advantage of 4 new custom controls, stabilize your back with an easy-to-adjust lumbar support, or modify the quick-adjust back to adapt to your specific needs and preferences. Choose between a Black frame and the new Titanium option, then pick from an expanded fabric selection to coordinate with an existing office aesthetic or just show off your personal style.

Why comfort? Ignition 2.0. was designed to comfortably, flexibly, dynamically move you to change the world. Tailored to your body, new molded seat foam invites you to sit in your chair, rather than on it. The enhanced back design now includes ilira®-stretch mesh that flexes in every direction to create a soft, responsive feel and target support where it’s needed most – no matter what your workday brings.

Let me hear you whoot, whoot, because we’ll give it to you cheap, cheap!

(Last song reference, I promise!) A knocked down (KD) version of the task chair with patent-pending Quick Connect arms is also available, offering slimmer packaging and allowing Ignition 2.0 to reach a lower price point than ever before.

And last, but not least. When you buy Ignition chairs, you’re not just buying inspired practical solutions – you’re buying quality, American designed, engineered and assembled furniture backed by a lifetime warranty and a network of dealers.

2. One of Solve’s three back options, ilira®-stretch, is a knit fabric that uses your own weight to create a softer, more personal fit. If comfortability wasn’t enough, we’ve added new color options, including recently launched Navy, Charcoal and Chai. This responsive mesh back is also available in Fog and the traditional Black.

Thanks to Flock’s latest expansion, customers now have 2 more reasons to “Flock” to a collaborative space (these were a hit at NeoCon 2016!):

We all know the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  Just like Goldie sought to find her perfect fit before getting comfortable, it’s the same story when it comes to office furniture. Employees are safer, better supported and generally happier contributors when ergonomics are taken into consideration.  To meet the individual needs of a variety of users, HON designed Solve, a versatile seating solution that’s sure to be a happy ending for everybody.  Every body. Here’s a “taste” of the three unique back options for the Solve seating line that are bound to help you find the fit that’s “just right” for you:

Solve with ilira®-Stretch Mesh Back
In October of 2015, The Solve mesh back option was introduced.  At first sit, you’ll notice something different about this mesh right away, with a level of comfort and support that is a step above the standard, run of the mill mesh.  The patented ilira®-stretch mesh is knit, not woven, and moves in 4 ways to provide multi-directional support.  You might recognize it from our other HON seating favorites, such as Nucleus®, Ceres® or the Endorse® Collection. Consider this the ‘soft’ solution that helps regulate body temperature when you’re hard at work.

Solve with ReActiv™ Back
Let’s give a warm welcome to the ReActiv™ back!  This is a brand new back material for HON that provides a unique support style.  The ReActiv back is a hexagonal pattern of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) featuring intersecting nodes that act independently and provide the best of both worlds – the rigidity of a standard back with the breathability of mesh.  Not to mention the interesting design aesthetic it adds to the workplace. I personally consider this the ‘just right’ solution.

Solve with Upholstered ReActiv™ Back
Also a newcomer to the Solve line, the Upholstered ReActiv back isn’t your ordinary upholstery method.  We’ve used the Reactiv back as the base with a layer of foam and your choice of six Compass fabric colorways. The unique quality of this Solve back model is that it provides the user with maximum support while still regulating body temperature through the ventilated back.  I consider this the ‘firm’ solution.

One of the highlights of this flexible seating line is that it can be easily customized to meet the individual needs of each user. To find which Solve back option fits you “just right”, I encourage everyone to take a test drive for themselves.  Once you do, I’m sure you’ll find your search for a universal task seating solution…SOLVED!  Find your local HON dealer here and then let us know – which is your favorite?

For more information, please visit the Solve spotlight page on hon.com or view the Solve brochure.

Today’s workers are becoming more mobile, increasing the need for a seating solution that can support them as they transition between individual and collaborative work environments. Solve task chairs were designed to intuitively adapt to each user’s body and movement to provide all day comfort and support as the way we work continues to evolve. For those of you that are struggling with your typical “everyday” office chair… let us SOLVE your problem!

Solve Seating Statement of Line

To provide the high level of personalization required to meet the ergonomic and functional needs of a variety of users throughout your space, Solve task chairs and stools feature 3 unique back materials, three ergonomic controls, and an optional adjustable lumbar support and arms. Additional features, such as the seat glide and waterfall seat edge, enhance natural movement and increase leg circulation. The synchronized seat and back move in harmony with the user to provide continuous comfort that can be customized, allowing people to work anywhere from individual workstations to private offices, training areas to meeting rooms.

The beauty of Solve is reflected in the design statement it makes for any organization. The new streamlined, geometric ReActiv™ back boasts an interesting hexagonal pattern and is available in two classic colors, Charcoal or Platinum. The upholstered ReActiv back showcases 6 colors from our new Compass fabric, and with the seat available in hundreds of HON fabric selections you have the ability to mix and match for a dual-fabric look! The soft ilira®-stretch mesh back is available in Black to coordinate with virtually any aesthetic.
