Nightingale’s IC2 provides users with premium quality and ergonomic comfort all with a luxurious aesthetic design. The IC2 Series is available in 3 models (mid-back, adjustable or integrated head rest) and 2 finishes (black or white). Headrest pivots in/out and adjusts up/down on a contoured axis. Nightingale’s Nebula™ non-see-through mesh is standard for the seat and back, which allows air to circulate while its design facilitates dynamic movement and promotes good posture. The slow release, pneumatically assisted, infinite tilt lock, synchronous GALILEO™ mechanism features an adjustable integrated dual-lever seat slider and easy to use tension control. IC2’s 4D armrests are height and width adjustable with lockable swivel and can move forward/backward. The contoured lumbar support pad can be easily adjusted up/down, in/out for personalized comfort and ergonomic support. Nightingale’s IC2 is 98% recyclable with 40% less weight and material than comparable chairs. The IC2 can be upholstered in our high-quality textiles, vinyls or leathers available in a wide range of colors.
