  Geiger presents new Leeway Seating by Keiji Takeuchi  
 
Geiger has recently introduced Leeway Seating, designed by Keiji Takeuchi, as the company’s most varied seating line. Leeway is Takeuchi’s first solo project with Geiger, though he played an important role in the development of Geiger’s Saiba line working as part of designer Naoto Fukasawa’s studio.


Allowing freedom of movement within Leeway’s minimal footprint was an important design consideration for Takeuchi. The range of motion allowed by most side chairs is defined by the space between armrest supports. With Leeway’s crescent-shaped, cantilevered backrest, which attaches only to the back legs, users are given a place to rest elbows while being free to spread out and move naturally as they sit to collaborate or socialize.


Takeuchi explained, “My work was not done until people were happy to sit on them. If people have any hesitation choosing my chair over something else, that means something is missing.”


The Leeway Seating family is available in bar- and counter-height stools as well as side chairs, to create a clean, uniform aesthetic throughout a space. Leeway Chairs come in all-wood, or with metal frames and a choice of wood or polyurethane seats and backrests. Chairs with metal frames can be stacked three-high. Leeway Stools have a metal frame with seats and backrests available in wood or polyurethane. All wood seats can be upholstered in a range of options from Geiger Textiles, Herman Miller, and Maharam.


Leeway Seating will orderable through Geiger and Herman Miller’s North American contract dealer network, as part of the Herman Miller Collection, beginning spring 2018.
