Custom made conference room furniture

Dunedin City Council were seeking custom-made conference room furniture to accommodate the exact number of councillors, members of media, and public that attend regular meetings.

The council needed a comfortable and functional meeting arrangement. Metalon, one of our resellers based in Dunedin, supplied Buro Seating chairs and created custom-made tables to be mobile and allow for different meeting configurations. All of the tables include in-built modern technology with USB and power outlets.

The importance of comfortable and ergonomic seating in conferences

Conferences and council meetings are often characterised by lengthy sessions where participants engage in discussions, presentations, and decision-making processes. These gatherings can extend for several hours. Given the demanding nature of these events, it becomes crucial to prioritise the comfort and wellbeing of attendees. One significant factor that contributes to their overall experience is the selection of appropriate seating, specifically ergonomic chairs with fully adjustable features.

Metalon’s team evaluated various products before selecting thirty Buro Metro II office chairs and ten Buro Essence visitor chairs for their ergonomics, strength, and support.

The Buro Metro II chairs feature a breathable fine mesh back with adjustable lumbar support and an extra comfortable seat with elastic knit upholstery. The 3 lever heavy-duty mechanism with depth-adjustable seat slide delivers exceptional comfort and support.

The Buro Essence chairs are a fantastic four leg visitor chair with arms. They feature an extra-wide foam backrest and seat. Their ability to stack, makes them a great solution for versatile flexible spaces.
These ergonomic chairs provide optimal support, help participants to stay focused and engaged and mitigate the potential health risks associated with extended periods of sitting.
