The Orvia is the new benchmark in contemporary banquet & conference chairs from Burgess Furniture.

Designed by Peter Roth, it melds the latest innovative design with the well established market leading qualities of the Vario-Allday. A unique asymmetrical aluminium extrusion which creates an illusion of slender elegance while retaining the inherent strength Burgess chairs are renowned for, the world over. The flexing aluminium bracket and contoured upholstered back with lumbar creates the most comfortable solution for conference & dining. The optional top-rail has been redesigned using a new extrusion which is not only ergonomic for handling but is also refined in visual terms, nesting subtly into the top of the upholstery.

Orvia is available as a side chair, arm chair and task chair, and is complemented by an extensive range of quality contract fabrics and finishes. It can be stacked up to ten high with specially designed clear stack buttons which will guide and retain the chairs’ position for stable storage.
