AC 5 Meet
AC 5 Meet is the classic conference chair in the AC 5 Group of office chairs. Thanks to the understated elegance of its design and the use of high-quality materials, AC 5 Meet cuts a fine figure in both traditional and contemporary conference settings. The shape of the chair's backrest enables considerable freedom of movement, and it is combined with a rocking mechanism and shock-absorbing seat suspension to offer superb comfort – even during prolonged periods of sitting.
