Italian Ingenuity – Piretti’s NIMA® Seating Range

Chair Swivel Base


NIMA is one of Italian designer Giancarlo Piretti latest creations and offers Piretti’s unmatched “Flex Back” in a family of seating, including a range with swivel bases:



The “Flex Back” Difference – With most stacking chairs, the best one can hope for is some “give” when leaning back. This explains the popularity of mesh back stacking seating. At least this feature offers some “give” when the seated person leans back. But this is crude comfort versus Piretti’s “Flex Back” seat. This patented feature is amazing, indeed brilliant.


NIMA’s Flex Back seat relies on the perfect placement of its pivot mechanisms on both sides of the chair. What this means is surprisingly comfortable support for a wide range of body types.


Giancarlo Piretti’s Flex Back NIMA seating line complements its symmetrical beauty with engineering brilliance. For NIMA, he has designed pivot mechanisms that are the product of years of research to achieve perfection. In effect, the NIMA Flex Back mechanisms hold up the person seated so the person neither slumps back nor is forced into an uncomfortable upright position. The result is perfect comfort.


“Perfect Comfort” is not about price, so do not be surprised when your NIMA seating is more expensive than stacking seating with little design value. You will be consoled each time you or your patrons look at or sit on your NIMA chairs.
