FOLDING CHAIR CAPTURES BEST OF SHOW AT NEOCON
June 13, 2000
CLEARFIELD, Utah -- Lifetime Products, Inc., leading manufacturer of polyethylene furniture, was awarded Best of Show from Design Journal for the original design of the Lifetime Folding Chair featured at NeoCon 2000.
The chair, chosen from hundreds of new products at NeoCon, was selected based on its form, functionality and overall style.
"We believe that the design of Lifetime's Folding Chair is not only pleasing to the eye, but is obviously stronger and more comfortable than what is currently out there," says Mike Campbell, Best of Show Director.
The chair is blow-molded of high-density polyethylene, with a rounded seat and higher back providing sculpted comfort.
"Traditional chairs are actually flat, with padding that is too thin to make a real difference in comfort," says Eric Szymanski, Market Research Manager. "Lifetime's Folding Chair has a curved back and seat. The contours are designed in a way that no padding is needed."
The chair's frame is composed of powder-coated oval tubing for increased strength. Industrial-strength leg caps insert directly into the oval tubing, rather than over the end. This innovation prevents the cap from falling off, a common occurrence in typical folding chairs.
