repiroue / Chair


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The repiroue is a series of chairs that with its simple design, compact size and multiple customization options is ideal for a variety of use scenes. The swing type provides the perfect combination between “Sitting” and “Standing” and has been newly designed to be kind on the body. When working in a semi-standing position, the forward tilt of the seat supports the spine as if standing and also maintains its S-curve reducing lower back stress. The omni-directional tilting pillar provides the perfect seating angle regardless of a person’s physique or the type of work performed. The ring lever under the seat makes height adjustment possible.
