Performance Sports Concept
Sports and work share many similarities. Performance, focus, speed, victory, reward. Your equipment
is crucial for success. Applying the sports gear concept to office furniture is revolutionary. Like many
cutting-edge sports equipment, WAU combines excellent ergonomics and trendy styles to provide you the best performance.
Innovative Ergonomic Technology
The back and seat pivot axis is placed close to the human’s hip socket joint (acetabulum), such that there
is no relative movement between the backrest and torso, providing a natural and constant fit support
through the recline range.
We envisioned a deep scalloped form that would cradle and wrap the user, resembling the heel cup
of a ski boot and the bucket seat design of a concept sports car. Another characteristic of the chair is
the soft-rigid element found in sports gear, it combines flexibility for comfortable fit and effective
force transfers. The loud appearance is intentional, to express its high-performance purpose.
