Activer / chair

Activer

Remodeling of STOKKE Variable balans.
Knee support type chairs are counted as more ergonomical than normal chair. STOKKE Variable series is one of the representatives and they provide very different sitting experience. However, they have several drawbacks even though they achieved some of their goal which are mainly to make users move actively to lessen strain or fatigue on their backbones and muscles. I tried to recover the drawbacks and develop the concept with crossed metal tube instead of bent wood legs, stiffly curved seat instead of separated seat pads. These changes give users even more variable angle for changing posture on sitting.
