Duora / Office chair

Duora

Discipline: Product

The Duora is an office chair with new features to offer comfort seating along with changes in working style and devices. With the new feature on the back, it is easy to switch between the two seating positions: “Relax mode” to hold a right spine posture and “Concentration mode” to ensure a natural forward-bend posture when working with a laptop. The armrest, also designed to slide backwards, allows sitting closer to the desk. It provides easy access to use laptops and tablets. Standing-out “Dual-flame” providing perfect fitting is designed to be simple and elegant. The white base with “Clean text coating®” painting developed in-house remains clean for longer than ever before.
