Groundbreaking Ergonomics, Beautiful Design, and Leading Environmental Stewardship


The Very Task balances craft with technology and clean geometry with contour and comfort. This task chair is equipped with our patented asymmetrical lumbar support, and the breatheable suspension mesh back is built to react in ways your body specifically needs for optimal comfort.

Very is as at-home in your residence as it is at HQ. Proven quality and durability make Very a mainstay feature in boardrooms, while the superior comfort and timeless design make it a favorite for the home office. Whether fully loaded with 4D arms and Lumbar, or configured with fixed arms and no lumbar to highlight it's minimal form.

Very is also made with the earth in mind. It is constructed in the USA with more than 60% recycled material, and it's 98% recyclable. When you’re ready to part with Very several years down the road, you will be able to disassemble Very within 20 minutes. Or, we’ll be happy to recycle it for you.

"We wanted to give the chair a controlled presence to create a balance between simplicity, function, and expression."

Residential Very Task Chair - Haworth Store

Maximum Innovation. Minimal Form.

Magic Mesh

Ok it's not magic but "tons and tons of engineering" isn't an alliteration. Your back isn't a flat board, and your chair shouldn't treat it that way. Our tuned mesh is woven and stretched using a propriety process that provides an adapting surface to fit the organic shape of your spine. Outfit Very with our asymmetrical lumbar to turn Very Task into an ergonomists dream. Our patented lumbar support is not only unique, but necessary- about 70% of users in the research done by the Human Performance Institute at Western Michigan University prefer having more support on one side of their spine.

"The chair's overall design is a composition of a dynamic visual, responding to the physical movement, offering an intuitive and inviting experience"

When Michael Welsh and Nicolai Czumaj-Bront began creating the design for Very, they set out to make a chair that worked with architecture, unlike many of its competitors. Very incorporates consistent architectural forms that make the chair look beautiful in every setting. At its profile, the Very Task is as sleek and sharp as they come. Its sophisticated body, dressed in any of our premium materials, creates a distinct look that is impossible to find anywhere else. More than just looks, good design is functional and lasting; Very is backed by our industry leading 12 year, 24/7, multiple shift warranty. We aren' the only ones who think that Very Task is gorgeous. It is the winner of the GOOD Design Award, IDEA Gold Award, Reddot Design Award, FX International Interior Design Award, and is Greenguard Gold and BIFMA Level 3 certified.

Designed for Performance

The Very Task chair features all of the best ergonomic functions, allowing users to experience maximum comfort for extended periods of time. This includes our patented asymmetrical lumbar support, 4-dimensional arms, optional headrest, 20-degree chair recline, 3-point tilt, backlock, adjustable tilt tension and adjustable seat depth. All of these functions ensure that the Very Task can be adjusted easily to fit you body perfectly.

Care & Maintenance

Seat Fabric and Back Mesh
These fabrics are colorfast when using standard wet and dry cleaning processes and are also resistant to most spot-cleaning solvents.

     Dry soils: vacuum surfaces regularly to prevent sand, dust, ash, and dry dirt from being worked into the fabrics.
     Wet soils: use commercially available water-based upholstery detergents to clean mud, spills, food, and so on. Follow directions on package.
     Oily spills: grease, tar, greasy foods, etc. may require cleaning with a solvent cleaner or solvent-fortified detergent. Follow directions on package.

A blotting technique should remove most spots. Avoid brushing or rubbing to prevent pilling of the fabric surface.

Most stains can be removed with lukewarm water and a mild soap. Then wipe the leather with a damp cloth and dry with a soft, dry cloth. Saddle soaps, polish, or wax should never be used. For general maintenance, dust the leather surface just as you would furniture.

Use a mild detergent and warm water; apply with a soft clean cloth. Hard scrubbing with brushes may harm the surface so is not recommended. Remove any soapy residue with clean water and clean cloth.

Clean with lukewarm water and a mild detergent as needed. After washing, rinse with clean water on a soft cloth, and dry with a clean soft cloth.
