Office chair History
In the course of industrialization, chairs, which were otherwise only reserved for the upper class, became furniture for everyone. At the beginning of the 20th century, the first ergonomic chairs were developed for the office in Germany after Thomas E. Warren had designed the first model in the USA in 1849. This chair was at that time already on four rolls to move and had a backrest, which could be tilted backwards by means of a leaf spring. Ever since, new functions and ideas have been added. Today, in the 21st century, the office swivel chair has evolved enormously. The excellent example of this is the MedaPal of Vitra. This office swivel chair is one of the most modern seating furniture among the Vitra products:
Vitra MedaPal Swiveling chair - Features
The MedaPal swivel chair offers a successful combination of intelligent technology, user-friendliness and high seating comfort. Few, high-quality components make it an ecological, economical and long-lasting companion in the office day. The lumbar area is supported by the freely braced polyamide mesh cover. It is enclosed in a back frame, which is manufactured from a cast in a complex process. The backrest also provides freedom of movement and flexibility. The seat of the office swivel chair is designed to position the basin. Already at the first sitting, the pleasant sitting comfort is revealed. The coherent operability avoids error settings.
Swivel chair with synchronized mechanism
The counterforce of the backrest can be adjusted individually thanks to the synchronous mechanism. This allows us to comply with our urge to move and therefore to sit dynamically by sitting back comfortably. If an office swivel chair like the MedaPal offers these possibilities of movement, these are used verifiably. We sit dynamically and the revolving chair has decisive supporting qualities. In general: a combination of dynamic sitting and a change between standing and sitting are optimal for the body during office work.
Quality and sustainability
With sustained quality, the MedaPal offers the necessary functions for ergonomic comfort during sitting. The service for this swivel chair is easy thanks to the interchangeable backrest, seat pad and armrests. As the first model of office chairs, the MedaPal was awarded the "Blauer Engel for low-emission upholstery furniture". The "GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Label" was also awarded to him.
