The Designer

Ralf Umland

From the very beginning Ralf and his team concentrated on successfully blending advanced ergonomic principles with sublime good looks.

No easy task given that their brief also stipulated that the product had to be positioned in an aggressively priced market segment.

Undeterred and drawing upon their vast collective experience they identified a ‘basic modular principal’ for the chair. The resultant universal frame for the chair back avoids multiple components being needed for the upholstered and mesh designs.

This principal has been applied across the range and thanks to the universal frame the entire product group follows a clear design line.

“i-sit is a complete family of seating whose modular concept allows users to select a harmonious configuration to suit their needs.”

“It was obvious from the start that the product had to be an all-singing, all-dancing, all-rounder.”

Advanced ergonomics. Sublime good looks.

The ergonomic mechanism at the heart of the i-sit chair has been designed with sophisticated synchronous technology that responds to your requirements in the fewest adjustments. It is simple and intuitive to operate and ensures enhanced geometry and total comfort at all times.

i-sit uniquely combines design and innovation, in an affordable and economic package making it perfect for all markets and organisations.

We are proud of i-sit and grateful to Ralf and his team for developing a product family in line with our philosophy for the future of seating.
