    Collaborative Seating

    Collaborative Seating

    The i2i chair was designed to foster collaboration. Users are able to stay engaged as they retain eye-to-eye and eye-to-information contact thanks to the unique i2i dual swivel mechanism.

    Automatic Comfort

    Automatic Comfort

    Encourage Movement + Comfort for Longer Periods of Time.

    i2i is an ergonomic chair that moves with the body.

    • Each time the user moves, the flexing fingers of the back give appropriate support according to the position.
    • With no adjustments, the i2i office chair allows users to get comfortable quickly and stay engaged in their work.
    • The dual swivel mechanism allows users to shift postures quickly and easily.
    • The swivel base promotes movement and provides support in a variety of postures.

    Ideal Settings

    Ideal Settings

    Used alone or paired with media:scape, users can share both analog and digital content easily and seamlessly.

    i2i is ideal for:

    • welcome areas in-between spaces
    • small collaborative areas
    • open and closed office environments


    Design Flexibility

    Design Flexibility

    i2i offers customization with a wide range of colors and textiles. Multiple combinations help create a more stimulating, productive, and enjoyable workspace.


    The i2i chair was designed specifically to foster collaboration and was based on three observations that generated our key insights:


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


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