Collaborative Seating

There’s no such thing as a quick meeting. We spend more time collaborating today than ever before. Squirming, fatigue, and loss of focus are unavoidable. Let’s face it. Working with others requires a completely different set of postures, and thus, a completely different kind of chair. One that helps keep you comfortable and focused in collaborative settings like conference and training rooms.

Flexibility

Flexibility

Flexibility

Every part of the cobi office chair was designed to flex and adjust to your body. With it’s insightful and ergonomic design, the chair’s top flexing edge lets you comfortably rest your arm on top of the chair—you know, like you’ve tried to do on every chair you’ve ever sat in. The flexing seat encourages you to move and shift, allowing you to sit centered or off to the sides. And the flexing back contours to support any posture your body needs at any given moment.

Automatic Comfort

Automatic Comfort

Automatic Comfort

Research says you don’t adjust chairs in conference rooms. Maybe up or down, but probably not much more than that.

The cobi chair offers one manual adjustment (seat height). The rest is taken care of for you by putting you in the best position of comfort. When you first sit in cobi, it senses your center of gravity and adjusts to the position that will put the least amount of stress on your body, while still keeping you properly oriented and supported. When you shift or move, cobi does the same.

Various Postures

Various Postures

Various Postures

The cobi office chair encourages movement and supports a variety of postures. With only one adjustment – seat height – , and a weight-activated mechanism that allows this office chair to move with with you it’s easy for anyone to get comfortable.

  • The weight-activated mechanism senses your center of gravity and adjusts to the position that will put the least amount of stress on your body, while keeping you properly oriented and supported.
  • Seat height accommodates different heights and leg lengths.
  • The flexible top edge and flexible seat allow people to sit in a variety of postures.
  • The open frame also allows users to sit sideways in the chair.

Insights

The cobi chair was designed specifically to foster collaboration and was based on three observations that generated our key insights:

Observations

  1. Collaboration takes time.
  2. People don’t adjust their chairs while collaborating.
  3. People change postures when collaborating.

Insights

  • Chairs should promote movement and be comfortable for long periods of time.
  • Adjustments should be automatic and intuitive.
  • Chairs should support multiple postures.
