Chair of the Month Review: Picado by Kimball International

We definitely felt the love this February as we worked from an all red Picado chair by Kimball International.

Work Design Magazine’s Katie Sargent along with the design team at Ted Moudis NYC collectively logged 40+ hours working from the Picado chair by Kimball International.  Here’s their top takeaways from the experience.

Easy to move and equally stylish, the Picado chair is a perfect fit for any work setting! The lightweight and rollable aspects allow for the Picado chair to be moved across work environments –  from conference rooms to workstations, or even a cafe or lounge area. The comfortable cushion supports work throughout the day, while the frame and color options make Picado a standout piece!

The Rundown

  • Key Features: The height adjustable features – the pneumatic lift and swivel tilt promote good posture and movement throughout the day.
  • Chair Design: The sinous arms and perforated flex back are more than just cool design elements, they support long-term comfort. The perforated flex back promotes air circulation.
  • Adjustable Options: Comes in work surface or stool height. You can also add a foot ring.
  • Fabric Options: Monochromatic or contrasting seat options in a plethora of fabrics. (We had the Red Frame with a contrasting cream seat!)
  • Sustainability Spotlight: Picado is SCS Indoor Air Advantage Gold certified and 92% recyclable at end of life. ​

What We Loved Most

Picado goes beyond meeting our ergonomic and environmental standards. It is a great way to incorporate color and branding into a space. With comfort on the mind – The cushion is plush enough to feel comfortable, but firm enough to be supportive.

We love that the chair is recyclable and completely reusable. 

Our reviewers found the profile handsome and the hard mesh back is a clever and modern take for a meeting chair. The arm and back has a sleek and clean design that would fit nicely in a meeting space or phone room. The springy bounce of the recline action feels very nice while still being stable.
