Dutailier To Introduce Innovative Glider Collection

Furniture World News on

Dutailier, the industry leader in the glider rockers’ design and manufacturing, brought prototypes of the upscale Matrix Glider Collection to the Las Vegas Market. These gliders are completely adaptable to one’s individual morphology and are Dutailier’s most innovative products to date in terms of personalization. The new Matrix Glider Collection (world patent is pending) will be officially launched at the Las Vegas ABC Show in September and the High Point Market in October. The chairs are the result of Dutailier's significant investment in its ACT (Advanced Chair Technology) program. The result is the Matrix glider that allows consumers to choose among a vast selection of components to create the ultimate comfortable chair. The seats, backs, armrests and mechanism can be easily customized with modular parts. Retailers can help customers to adapt gliders to their morphology, whether they are five or six foot tall, of small or large build. “No human being is physically identical. We wanted to design an ergonomic glider that would provide optimal comfort through complete morphology adaptability. We used anthropometric statistical data to study the distribution of body dimension in the population. We were then able to establish technical parameters to develop a glider that would adjust to differences in height and body build,” explains Alain Bellefleur, Vice-President, Research and Development. “One of the challenges we faced was the adaptability of the armrest. With the new Matrix gliders, we have succeeded in developing a technique that allows for perfect fitting with one’s height,” adds Bellefleur. In addition to offering optimal comfort seating, the chairs of the new Matrix Glider Collection come in a wide range of fabrics that allows for complete decor harmonization. The urban contemporary style of these new gliders will please consumers that want to add motion comfort seating to their living room or den furniture as well as to parents looking for an ultra comfortable glider for the nursery room. Present in over 15 countries on three continents, Dutailier has been making fine furniture for over 30 years. As the leader of the category, Dutailier has always been at the forefront of innovation. Some of its most innovative mechanisms are patented and are the result of thorough experimentation and tests from its knowledgeable research and development team. The end benefit is the guarantee of the best technology, quality and durability, plus a depth of product mix that allows for multiple personalization options.
