Niels chair / seat

Niels chair
Niels chair

The Niels Chair is a multi-function micro-environment good for your health. Its organic woolen envelope provides you with an extraordinary space of comfort and quietude favorable for the concentration and relax, especially while using the multimedia devices.
You can isolate yourself, but still remain connected to your environment. It’s a multicultural seat suitable for public spaces, offices and home.
It allows you to change freely the body position according to your activity and to regain the kneeling yoga position, sitting back on your heels, which straightens up the hips and the back, tones the abdominals and improves blood circulation.
