THE NEW SITTING EXPERIENCE
Technology is the single greatest force driving the changes in the way we work, live and behave.
The new, multiple devices we deploy throughout our work day allow us to flow between tasks, fluidly, and frequently.
Gesture is the first office chair designed to support our interactions with today’s technologies.
Inspired by the human body. Created for the way we work today.
INSPIRED BY THE HUMAN BODY
To design a new sitting experience, we stopped looking at chairs and started looking at people.
Understanding posture at work and how the body naturally moves caused us to ask, “could a chair act as a system, just like human body?”
This question caused us to fundamentally rethink how to design a chair. When we studied the full range of postures at work, we studied three key interfaces between the human body and their chair.
– THE CORE INTERFACE
The Gesture office chair back and seat move as a synchronized system, moving with each user to provide continuous and persistent support. The back cradles the user no matter the posture or device being used.
– THE 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.
– THE 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.
Gesture adapts cleverly to your natural movements and has simple controls that are easy to find, understand and use.
