are leading Interstuhl in the third generation.
Interstuhl's story of success began in 1961, when two blacksmiths, Wilhelm and Werner Link, started to revolutionise the world of work. With their inventive spirit, a lot of hard work and a clear view for the needs of the people around them, they created the first workplace chair, the Bi-Regulette. To this day – nearly 60 years and more than 30 million sold chairs later – our passion for innovative solutions that make people's lives and work easier is what drives us. Interstuhl is now active across the world, is one the of the leading European chair manufacturers and employs 850 committed members of staff. Our products make an important contribution to the health of the people using our products in offices or while working from home, in production environments, laboratories or while gaming.

Technical perfection, uncompromising quality, design you can experience with all your senses and the careful handling of all resources are what characterise every Interstuhl product. People are our reference point for everything we do. Our aim is still to offer the best possible solution to our customers' requirements.

Headquarter: Meßstetten-Tieringen, Germany
Interstuhl is an independent, autonomous and owner-managed family business. We are committed to our fully integrated headquarters in Meßstetten-Tieringen and continue to expand the site. A particular advantage of Interstuhl is the high level of vertical integration, which is unique in the sector. Our inhouse Research/Development/Engineering/Design (FEK) department with testing laboratory as well as sample and model construction provide the foundation for the competitiveness, innovation, quality and sustainability of our products. The in-house steel construction, welding shop, powder coating, upholstery shop with attached sewing workshop and foaming division, in addition to various pre-assembly and final assembly departments, not only reduce transport requirements but also ensure that our demand for sustainability is directly implemented in large parts of the added-value chain. Our own logistics system ensures optimised and short transport routes to our customers. Our employees are the foundation for the success of our business. Openness and honesty are guiding principles in our communication. We reconcile economic, ecological and social aims.

We are convinced that products can only truly be good if they are produced well. At the beginning of the 1990s, the first binding guidelines were put into place, which continue to be expanded on to this day. Interstuhl commits to consistently meeting statutory requirements and exceeding them on a voluntary basis. Our many awards are evidence of this mindset.

HOW IT ALL
BEGAN ...
1961
FIRST SUCCESS STORY AND FIRST
PATENT: BI-REGULETTE
Identifying needs and solving problems using technical innovations made even our very first chair into a success story. The individual adjustability and solid high-quality materials (steel, wood, aluminium) set standards even then. This chair enabled Interstuhl to obtain its first patent in 1962, for height adjustment. Many more would follow in the years to come.

THE ARCHITECT'S VISION:
FROM THE PORTER'S LODGE TO THE
MANAGEMENT FLOOR
Architects often voiced their desire for one uniform design for all areas of use. We pursued this ambition and created not only single pieces but also coherent and convincing product families for every workplace, without losing sight of individuality along the way. The Interstuhl manufacture makes every special request a reality.

SAFE AND ERGONOMIC SEATING
We are a pioneer in modern ergonomics. To us, the human body is the measure of all things. Cooperation with leading occupational healthcare professionals has a long tradition at Interstuhl. For example, we have worked with the occupational physiologist and internal medicine specialist, Prof. Dr. Kirn, as well as Dr. Åckerblom. Today, the Fraunhofer Institute is one of our most important cooperation partners.

ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS
ENSURES TRUE QUALITY
We have clear environmental policies, based on our desire to leave our children and grandchildren a stable economic, ecological and social environment. The first binding guidelines for consistently meeting statutory requirements and exceeding them on a voluntary basis were created during the early 1990s. Interstuhl set, and continues to set to this day, new standards for the entire sector.

A NEW AESTHETIC HAS MADE
ITS ENTRANCE
The new Interstuhl aesthetic goes far beyond a classic understanding of design. Our aim is to develop design that you can experience with all your senses. An Interstuhl product should not only be visually engaging, but, most importantly, should function perfectly. We create chairs that are technically capable, impress through the simplicity of their operation and that appeal to the sense of sight as much as the sense of touch.

INTERSTUHL BRANCHES OUT IN
NEW DIRECTIONS IN THE OFFICE
ENVIRONMENT
The path that Interstuhl has been following since 1961 has been varied, sometimes rocky, but always leading in a straight line. It's therefore congruent that we now look beyond the desk, to look at work as a whole and create not only chairs but also spaces. It goes without saying that, in doing this, people will always remain our measure.

ENJOY SEATING PERFORMANCE
People are more than just a workforce. And a workplace is more than just a desk and a chair. Interstuhl takes a holistic view, taking into account people just as much as their work. With our Active Sitting Solutions, we are taking a closer look at sitting and working habits and ensuring than people keep moving even when seated and that their health and performance are optimally safeguarded.

When looking at work holistically, you need to think in terms of spaces. We call this Splaces. This means structuring office environments according to workplace scenarios such as "Welcome", "Meet", "Work", "Relax", "Learn", "Home" and "Lead". We offer a wide product range for all sectors and create inspiring future-oriented space and working concepts.

Bimos
THE BEST WORKPLACE CHAIRS FOR INDUSTRY AND LABORATORIES
Working in industrial environments and laboratories entails quite specific requirements. It's important to meet people's needs on the one hand, but also to understand the specific characteristics of each individual workplace and translate these into innovative solutions.

The Bimos portfolio can be divided into five areas: Production, ESD, laboratory, cleanroom and standing work. In every area, we aim to offer the best possible chair for the respective seating needs. In addition to application-specific features such as robustness, ease of cleaning, electrostatic discharge capacity, or being free from emissions, this also involves our own ergonomics concepts that we offer especially for working in laboratories and in industrial environments.

Backforce
BETTER SEATING FOR
BETTER GAMING
Backforce combines a love for gaming with 60 years experience in seating. Backforce was developed in cooperation with eSports players. It meets all the requirements that professional gamers could have with regards to their chair. For a start, the special Syncseat mechanism ensures a weightless sitting sensation. The Dualcore chair provides support and comfort during long periods of sitting. And practical details such as armrests that can be folded away allow even more freedom when gaming. But what really catches your eye first of all is the impressive design with the Gamer Pulse Spotlight, and the many ways in which Backforce can be customised. Thanks to customised shoulder patches, it's even possible to personalise Backforce with the player's own nickname or clan tag.
