Designing a kneeling chair for the workplace
Chair 251 is a task chair design which supports both the classic way of sitting, as well as a kneeling posture. A mechanism was designed to enable a transformation between the modes that support each posture. This addresses the needs of a young, dynamic, and flexible work culture while still maintaining the aesthetics and functionality of common office chairs.
Final prototype of chair 251 transitioning between the kneeling chair and the normal office chair.
The built-in gas spring supports the backrest while sitting upright.
Testing the second prototype at my desk during lockdown in December 2020.
