The lightweight and robust steel frame of SUNO TUBE meets the highest requirements of easy cleaning, especially in the version with the plastic seat and back. The modern, sleek design combined with plywood and upholstery is ideal for setting up cafes in the healthcare sector. SUNO meets the requirements for ergonomics, hygiene and care of living and health facilities, without neglecting the value and quality of the aesthetic aspects.
SUNO TUBE is the logical evolution of the SUNO WOOD collection for hospitals and care facilities.
Effective stacking in combination with a chaining system also makes it suitable for events. The soft and curved lines of Suno’s seat and backrest provide a high level of seating comfort and both support and freedom of movement is provided through its ergonomic design. Visuals, functionality and longevity are united in SUNO.
SUNO OUTDOOR uses the same ergonomic, functional and hygienic benefits of SUNO for the garden, the terrace and the balcony in a Health Care Centre.
The consistent furnishing of the project is archievedby its colourful and simple design. It is outstandingly weather-resistant, due to its powder-coated stainless steel tube construction. Its thermos-polymer seat and back panels features rainwater slots that prevent water from collecting on the seat.
SUNO TUBE is specially designed for patient-oriented areas inside healthcare centres. The collection is available with and without armrests and a variety of upholstery variants.
The wood, or polymer, in the seat and back allows the individual to choose seats of their interests, thus enabling the usage of this seat in the cafeteria, common rooms or even for events. SUNO’s “plus” and “extra” versions offer more space and stability for the user.
The stackable SUNO TUBE collection can optionally be equipped with a row linking system, which makes seating for public events possible. The armchair chair of the SUNO TUBE collection is also available on castors.
In a joint study with doctors, occupational therapists, ergonomists and nursing staff, for SUNO, the S-Curve was developed by paying special attention on the ergonomics of the seat and back for people of an advanced age. The characteristically shaped backrest supports the lordosis in the lumbar region and allows freedom of movement in the shoulder area due to the curvature of its backrest. This property lengthens the time of fatigue free sitting in a relaxed posture whilst keeping an upright position.
Thanks to its tubular steel construction, the collection is characterized by its light weight, thus consequenting in the elaboration of this collections versatility. The robust frame of SUNO TUBE and OUTDOOR withstands all weather conditions.
The SUNO collection is available with thermopolymer seat and back or with partial upholsteries, giving opportunities to use the SUNO collection for a variety of applications including the furnishing of restaurant, café and active leisure areas.
SUNO’s “plus” and “extra” versions offer a wider seat and further stability for the user. The armchair with the recessed grip withstands weights of up to 250Kg. SUNO “plus” measures a distance of 58cm between each armrest, whereas the SUNO “extra” measures a distance of 75cm. SUNO “plus” and “extra” are optionally available with backs and seats in moulded plywood, thermo-polymer or a back padding.
The armchair of the SUNO TUBE collection is also available in a particularly strong version on castors. This allows a special use in the therapy rooms. Due to its stackability, it also acts as a substitute for a stacking cart.
The stackable SUNO TUBE collection can be equipped with a row linking system which makes seating for public events possible. The certified system complies with all international standards and is securely connected to the steel frame construction. After use, the system can be stored without creating any excess surface irregularities by sliding the components under the seat.
Functionality and Hygiene
Functionality and Hygiene
In designing the SUNO collection, special attention has been paid to the seamless joints and form-fitting, to enable easy and intensive cleaning. The so-called “crumb sweep” located between the back and the seat facilitates cleaning. The accumulation of unwanted segments between the upholstery and steel frame is avoided by the horizontally aligned connections of the different materials.
SUNO TUBE has a seamless surface structure, which makes the daily disinfection cleaning easier and prevents unwanted particles from accumulating in joints and corners. The antibacterial powder coating of the steel construction meets the special hygienic requirements in hospitals.
SUNO TUBE has a recessed grip on the backrest, which facilitates the movement of the chair and keeps the upholstery clean.
Both in thermo-polymer, molded plywood and upholstery, SUNO has an ergonomically rounded seat edge, which benefits blood circulation whilst seated. The upholstered seat covers all parts of the seat and is made out of rigid, shape-retaining foam and offers the user optimum comfort.
SUNO TUBE and OUTDOOR provides optimum stability and freedom of movement. The widened and ergonomically shaped armrests give the occupant more space and make getting up and sitting down easier.
SUNO OUTDOOR is particularly weather-resistant with its powder-coated stainless steel tube construction. Its thermopolymer seat and back panels feature rainwater slots that prevent water from collecting on the seat.
The shape and profile of the SUNO collection is characterized by its rounded corners and edges, which minimizes the risk of injury especially for elderly people. The appropriate diameter of the frame construction provides the user with a secure grip in the armrests, thus making him feel more stable.
