February 16, 2023 (Toronto) – Launching today, Keilhauer is expanding the award-winning Melete collection to include a stool base.

Originally launched at NeoCon 2022, Melete is a modern carbon neutral chair that is grounded in timeless Swedish design sensibilities and designed to elevate any interior design environment. With endless design options to choose from, like three heights, arms or armless, seat pads and now seven bases, Melete is one of Keilhauer’s most adaptable, versatile products.

The all-new stool base model has been added to the Melete seating collection due to popular demand and the success of the Juxta stool, another standout Keilhauer collection. Similar to the Juxta stool, the Melete stool base features five casters, an adjustable height function, a circular, supportive footrest and the unique, sculptural Melete backrest.

“The Melete seating collection is about the marriage of beauty and function,” says Meghan Sherwin, Chief Marketing Officer. “We are excited to provide this new Melete feature to our designers and customers, which will expand what is possible with this design.”

Ideal for a variety of spaces such as collaboration areas and office lunchrooms, the addition of the Melete stool base allows this stylish, beautiful design to be configured in even more design environments.

Designed by Swedish studio Afteroom, Melete is a winner of a Best of NeoCon Sustainability Award, an Interior Design HiP Award, and a Good Design Award. Melete was also an honoree at the 2022 Interior Design Best of Year Awards.


Melete is a carbon neutral seating collection. As with all Keilhauer furniture, Melete is built from the highest quality materials, designed and manufactured to last for many years, and is supported by Keilhauer’s standard 10-year warranty. Melete carries a BIFMA Level® 2 and SCS Global Services certification for Indoor Air Quality at the Indoor Advantage™ Gold level. It is manufactured in facilities that produce zero waste to landfill and offset 100% of electricity use with renewable energy credits.
