H&D Hotlist #094: New design products, furniture and accessories
The best task chairs in the market are precision-engineered to support your body for an extended period of time, hence: the hefty price tags. ErgoTune, a local brand specialising in adjustable seating solutions, offers a more affordable option. The ErgoTune chair features a height-adjustable backrest, an Auto-Tuning Lumbar Area Support (ATLAS), a four level reclining mechanism and rotatable and adjustable armrests. In short, all that high end office chairs offer, with a more comfortable price point.

Find these familiar? You probably will if you’ve lived in Singapore long enough. This limited-edition NDP 55 collection by design-forward furniture brand Grafunkt and fabric design studio Onlewo features a stool and ottoman upholstered in a tile- pattern reminiscent of the benches and tables usually found in Singapore’s public spaces. The pieces are modular, so they look great on their own or arranged as a group. Either way, it’s sure to be a talking point among your guests.
The Grafunkt x Onlewo NDP 55 collection retails from $420 at www.grafunkt.com or at Grafunkt’s Funan Mall store.
