Innovative Ergonomic Technology

The back and seat pivot axis is placed close to the human’s hip socket joint (acetabulum), such that there is no relative movement between the backrest and torso, providing a natural and constant fit support through the recline range.

Cross-performance design

We envisioned a deep scalloped form that would cradle and wrap the user, resembling the heel cup of a ski boot and the bucket seat design of a concept sports car. Another characteristic of the chair is the soft-rigid element found in sports gear, it combines flexibility for comfortable fit and effective force transfers. The loud appearance is intentional, to express its high performance purpose.
