The New Sitting Experience

The New Sitting Experience

We didn’t start with a chair design; we started by looking at the unique movements and gestures of the body.

Core Interface

Designed to provide continuous and persistent support in a wide range of postures

Limb Interface

Designed to support the range of motion of the human arm

Seat Interface

Designed to provide comfort to the edge of the seat

Core Interface

The Gesture office chair back and seat move as a synchronized system, moving with each user to provide continuous and persistent support.

Limb Interface

Limb Interface

Limb Interface

The Gesture arm moves like the human arm, which allows users to be supported in any position.

Arms and shoulder remain supported when texting on a smartphone, typing on a keyboard or swiping a tablet.

Seat Interface

The Gesture seat brings comfort all the way to the edges. It is flexible at the perimeter to allow users to sit in a range of postures without obstruction.

Global Posture Study

Global Posture Study

To best understand the body at work, we undertook a global posture study on six continents, observing over 2,000 people in a wide range of postures.

We discovered that new technologies combined with new behaviors led to nine new postures that are not adequately addressed by current seating solutions.

What We Learned

While technology boosts productivity, it can cause pain that disrupts our work, our ability to concentrate, and our creativity.

How might we design an office chair as advanced as today’s technology? A chair that augments our technology?

Range of Users

Range of Users

Today’s global workforce is incredibly diverse, with extreme sizes on the rise. From body size and shape to gender and generation, each play a role in the sitting preference of each individual.

How might we support all users yet meet the postural preferences that exist within the workplace?

Range of Spaces

Range of Spaces

Range of spaces

We see work being done in a greater range of spaces within the office. We’re spending equal amounts of time at our desk as we are in collaborative spaces. We’re sharing desks, where one day a larger person might be using a chair and the next day a much smaller person.

How might we solve for multiple users sitting in multiple spaces throughout a day?
