Don’t get stuck in one position
Design: Peter Opsvik
Life is a voyage of rest and motion, recreation and work, taking you from desk to dining table and from kitchen to living room. Enhance your journey with the Actulum™ or Pendulum™ – instruments designed to move along with you, guiding and supporting your body as you go.
As you move backwards for relaxation and forwards to be active, the runners allow the chair to tilt with your body. Leaning forward, the body needs to find its own equilibrium which keeps the back muscles working and avoids tensions in back and shoulders. When leaning backwards, your body can rest while your spine is supported correctly. The tilting action of the runners facilitates an angle between your thighs and torso, which is greater than 90 degrees. Together with the ‘dynamic sitting’, this allows you to breathe more deeply, improving both concentration and relaxation – whether you are working at a desk or being social with friends and family around the dinner table. The adjustable seat offers an additional option for people with shorter legs.
