Called Flex, the steel and plywood chair is designed to move with the body of the person sitting on it, supporting the muscles.
Here's some more information from Manassiev:
‘Flex’ is a chair that has a separated seat and backrest in order to allow different sitting positions. In order to be comfortable regardless of the way one sits the chair relies, on the one hand, on four panels which support the body and, on the other, on a flexible tubular frame which absorbs and follows every move.
The chair is designed to move with the body of the pearson seating on it. The movment allows better ergonomy because it provides the right support of the body no matter how we seat. It also supports only muscles but not the bones.
The shape of the seats and the backrests is designed to support only the parts of the body that needs to be supported. The shape is also designed that the edges of the seats cannot be felt. The space between the four pannels is made not to take any of the comfort away and body-parts, fingers or any type of clothing cannot be trapped between the seats.
