Cross Task Chair

Name of Designer:

DGM Number


Date of Award


Manufacturers’ Name



With home-working now an normalised for many, an aesthetic gulf between office-furniture and home interiors is increasingly apparent. The Cross Task Chair responds to this need by fusing workspace practicality with a softer domestic style. Designed to be aesthetically fitting to home office, co-working spaces or even around the kitchen table. The minimal aesthetic is paired ideologically with a strict reduction of elements. Using components from the existing Cross Chair programme and by adding a single bent tube, off the shelf, height-adjustable mechanism and star-base, delivers a comfortable, cost-effective home-work chair.
