December 08, 2023 – Haworth’s 75th Anniversary edition of the Fern task chair was an honoree in the Contract Task Seating category from Interior Design magazine’s Best of Year 2023 award. Now in its 18th year, Interior Design’s Best of Year recognizes the most noteworthy products and projects of the year, honoring designers, architects and manufacturers from around the world.

The 75th Anniversary Fern features a bold custom gradient and is the first task chair with digital knit on the arms, back and seat.
