Unlike traditional mesh, the versatility in the Intermix proprietary weaving process results in a platform for diversity and expression. Intermix offers an industry-leading color range that allows Steelcase Karman to fit a wide range of spaces.
The unique weaving process results variations of Intermix:
- Intermix is classic and translucent with a more traditional mesh look and feel.
- Intermix Opaque is luxurious and residential with the hand-feel of upholstery. To achieve this residential look Steelcase Karman was created with a single layer of mesh with additional filaments.
4-Way Arms are height adjustable, but also width, pivot, and depth giving you more ways to dial in your comfort.
Carpet Casters are made of hard plastic and work well on low to medium pile carpet.
Hard Floor Casters are softer with a polyurethane tread which protects hard floors.
