Over time the office chair has become a collection of adjustable ergonomic parts. While diligently addressing every incremental ergonomic need, ironically we had lost the shape of supporting one whole body. The aim of Movu is back to the simplicity of comfort. Movu is one magically moving form, with a single discriminating profile and spare elements that support the rest.
Functionality: One chair, one shape, magical movement that fits all. A revolutionary concealed synchronized mechanism supports the whole body within one upholstered form. The one-piece urethane spring provides reclining comfort for a wide range of body sizes and weights with no adjustment. The seat height is fully adjustable.
Flexibility: Movu is efficiently built and well priced to perform in a variety of settings that don't require constant use; such as meeting rooms, collaboration spaces and hoteling. Yet the comfort provided is as qualitatively excellent for an all-day task chair too.
Durability: Movu is built and tested to outperform the very strict standards of the Japanese domestic market which exceeds American norms for durability and includes additional compliance with consumer use. Movu is fully tested to exceed BIFMA standards for task and conference chairs.
Aesthetics: Getting comfortable should be simple and with Movu, it looks simple too. Our bodies are not split in two so why should a chair? Movu looks like a cozy seat, rather than a machine for sitting. With its sleek, reductive styling, Movu is contemporary and compelling, while simultaneously drawing on a very familiar and appropriate paradigm of what a chair should be.
Innovation: Unlike the separate seat and backrest of conventional reclining chairs, Movu looks and feels seamless, because it is one complete form that embraces the body, while concealing plastic supports that provide dynamic tilt. The tilt is guided by a rear frame which integrates the armrests, and also utilizes an energy efficient one-piece urethane spring. It provides comfort for all with zero adjustment.
Sustainability: Designed for Disassembly, Movu is made of fewer parts which collectively are 98% recyclable. The Seat and Back are fully upholstered with 52~67% recycled Polyester fabric
