"The idea came into my mind during the long hours of sitting at a meditation retreat. I kept adjusting the cushions to reduce pain in the back and knees. I thought, why not to try and use the same principle for healthy sitting and mental activity in the office or at home?" — Guntis Zingis, architect
After a year of research, design and testing together with ergonomics experts, we have come up with a conclusion that ergonomic sitting in combination with standing desk is the best for reducing sitting hours. Recent studies have found that sitting for a lengthy period of time is not only bad for us but is damaging to our body in the long run. Long fixated positions will guarantee aches and pains, but they can also cause bigger problems that can lead to premature terminal illnesses. We want to do something about it.
The Chair's geometry and angles are designed to reduce pressure on the backbone. It is made from a continuous 3D surface and combines a saddle type seat with two knee supports.
With our chair we want to change the common habit of sitting on something that is actually beneficial to the body. Since sitting for long hours is bad for one's health, we recommend using the chair at the office in combination with a standing desk. It can be also used for reading or meditation.
To suit all possible body dimensions Wchair will be produced in small, medium and large sizes.
