. –  On the occasion of Neocon 2011, Stylex is pleased to announce the availability of a revolutionary new illuminated control system for the state-of-the-art SAVA chair. Award-winning architect, Sava Cvek has enhanced his ground-breaking multi-task chair with the introduction of the “E” Option which features illuminated paddles, created to provide clear, intuitive indications even in low lighting environments. An industry first, this innovation is not only useful, but also an aesthetic and technical tour de force.

According to John Golden, president of Stylex, “The new illuminated panels prompt people to use the controls correctly to make the slight user adjustments necessary for optimizing comfort. Each paddle has specific icons to communicate intuitively its purpose so that a user is effectively led through what is already a very simple process. SAVA, which is suitable for executive task or conference use, can be placed in settings where lighting is sometimes low. The illuminated icons make adjustments easier.”

The “E” option is available on any SAVA chair with three or four-paddle controls. Batteries are rechargeable using a convenient USB connection found under the height adjustment paddle. Using a USB cable, the control is connected to either a computer or a wall charger. One full charge should last 6-12 months depending on a user’s particular habits.
