Astute Collection
Guest Wood

Astute embodies Allseating’s ambition to provide accessible design by combining modern style with exceptional versatility to yield a chair that’s ideal for all settings.


Indoor Air Quality Certified

Prices effective January 2nd, 2024.

Designed in collaboration with acclaimed European design studio, busk+hertzog, Astute is a multi-purpose chair that solves the functional needs of any modern workplace. To be astute is to be ‘sharp’ or ‘on the ball’ and Astute is both sharp in its design and on the ball in any setting. Its versatility checks more boxes than perhaps any other chair in the Allseating line-up making it the right choice no matter the application, whether on its own, or in large collaborative environments

NOTE:  For orders of less than 2 chairs, a cartoning surcharge of $22 net will be incurred.
