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

Core Interface

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

Seat Interface

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.

Headrest

Headrest

Until now, headrests have largely been an afterthought, but the Gesture headrest is integrated into the design. The design of the Gesture headrest takes into consideration features such as factors head size, neck length and desired range of motion to support a greater range of user sizes.

Through this intentional design, the Gesture headrest not only provides comfort and support, but also offers an unprecedented range of motion. This results in more choice and control over work postures.

Gesture headrest range of motion:

  • 5-inch range of height adjustment
  • 4 inches of forward and backward pivot movement
  • 90° of rotation

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

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?
