Below is the comment from Ergonomic Health Association:
Full comment from Ergonomic Health Association

If you’re looking for a high quality split seat chair, look no further than Kanewell’s twin saddle stool.

It has a superior ergonomic design, which will keep you comfortable in whatever task.

The split also helps for a great airflow under and around the seat, making it ideal for hot summer days.

And while the padding is minimal due to the split nature of the seat, the leather upholstery is of excellent quality.


Most people are quite satisfied with this chair, especially for the budget-friendly price for which it’s sold.

Those that aren’t used to split saddles can find the seat to lack padding but that’s normal for this type of chair.


  • The leather upholstery of this chair is top-grain and is extremely comfortable and durable.
  • The chair can come in several sizes, the largest one of which can be adjusted to up to 37” of height.
  • The split saddle on this chair is excellent for reducing the stress on your pressure points and relieving any back pain you may have experienced from other chairs.


  • As a split saddle chair, the cushion can be a bit lacking for some people.

ORGATEC suspended in 2020 and developing presentation options for 2021

ORGATEC suspended in 2020 and developing
presentation options for 2021 as part of the
Koelnmesse furnishings portfolio

The next regular edition of ORGATEC will be held from 25 to 29
October 2022.

Although outstanding registration levels for the autumn events had already been
achieved by spring 2020, and in spite of extensive preparations for the trade fair
and the #B-SAFE4business package of measures for coronavirus-compliant
implementation of our trade fairs, the situation of this trade fair increasingly
began to reflect current developments around Covid-19 and the economic
situation. In recent weeks, a large majority of exhibitors and trade visitors
decided not to attend ORGATEC after all. In light of this, Koelnmesse reassessed
the overall situation and decided that it was best to respond to the cancellations
and wishes of a large number of industry exhibitors and trade visitors by not
implementing ORGATEC 2020.

ORGATEC sets its sights on the future
The ORGATEC organisers, however, do not want to be discouraged by this setback
and immediately set their sights back on the future. Together with all of the trade
fair participants in the sector, Koelnmesse is joining the industry in search of
solutions to present the topics of ORGATEC at an international level in the coming

Together with industry, and under the rubric of events in the Koelnmesse furnishings
portfolio, such as imm cologne (18-24 January 2021), opportunities are being sought
to realise formats developed with partners from the sector – formats such as
Inspired Collaborations, the FRAME Architecture Congress or the Architektur+ Office
space developed with AIT – as soon as possible in a new form. The next regularly
scheduled ORGATEC will then be held from 25 to 29 October 2022 in Cologne, in the
accustomed size and level of internationality.

Koelnmesse – Global Competence in Furniture, Interiors and Design: Koelnmesse
is the world’s top trade fair organiser for the areas of furnishing, living and lifestyle.
