Alex Zanda is the culmination of 100 years of seating design, engineering, and manufacturing expertise.
With a background in architecture, interior design and fabric development, we are fascinated by the science of ergonomics and its impact on the human body. Inspired by the restraint of simplicity, we’ve designed a series of chairs that pare back the need for padding, armrests and accessories, while providing the individual with a supported, safe, and comfortable seating experience.
With its iconic curve that mirrors the human spine, each Alex Zanda chair delivers an experience to users that isn’t soon forgotten, and can be attributed to the elegant yet deceivingly simple frame design and fabric selection.
Today, Alex Zanda continues to craft ergonomic, comfortable, and enduring pieces of Australian made seating for both commercial and residential spaces. We believe in the power of good design and a commitment to simplicity, quality, and comfort. Pairing form and function, Alex Zanda chairs are found in executive offices, council spaces, childcare centres to work from home offices across Australia.
Each chair is carefully handcrafted in our Sydney facility and shipped Australia wide.
Alex Zanda is a division of UES International, known for its commitment to engineered solutions across a range of industrial, commercial and transportation sectors.
These are no ordinary chairs.
Alex Zanda chairs are hand made in Sydney, Australia. We hand cut, bend, assemble and finish each and every chair, taking care to check every step of the way. We make sure that each chair receives the attention to detail expected from a premium quality design and manufacturing process. We are proudly Australian Made and plan on keeping it that way.
There’s no getting past the fact that a considerable part of a person’s working day is spent in their chair. Even at a conservative 5 hours a day, it is 25 hours a week, which turns into 1300 hours a year. That’s a lot of hours to be seated in a chair.
It makes sense to have a chair that is comfortable, supportive and promotes back health. A chair that increases productivity and maximises the efficiency of the person sitting in it. An office chair that is not quite right leads to lower back strain and other physical problems, causing discomfort, lost time at work and decreased productivity.
Chairs are a part of the décor of any space. Many people try to make sure a chair looks good without worrying about the effects the chair will have on the person who uses it. The ergonomics of a chair should be considered above everything else. With an Alex Zanda chair, the aesthetics and the ergonomics work together, so nothing is compromised. The ultimate meeting of form and function.
