    Comfortable Collaboration

    Collaboration is increasingly common in the workplace. Based on three key observations and insights, QiVi was designed as an ergonomic chair to increase comfort during collaboration.

    • Encourages movement and supports multiple postures
    • Automatic and intuitive backrest and seat adjustments
    • Pivoting backrest and gliding seat that move with the body

    Automatic Adjustment, Maximized Performance

    QiVi is an ergonomic chair designed with a pivoting backrest and gliding seat that allow automatic adjustments in posture or position.

    Pivoting Backrest
    Pivoting backrest naturally adjusts as the body moves.

    Gliding Seat
    Gliding seat naturally moves forward and back with the user, encouraging posture shift.


    Collaborative Story

    The QiVi office chair was designed specifically to foster collaboration and was based on three key insights:

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