Embody® Chair Designed by Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber
So intelligent, sitting in it actually helps you think!
Embody began with the recognition of a previously unsolved problem: the lack of physical harmony between people and their technology. Spending too much time sitting in front of our laptops or staring at our tablets, moving nothing but our fingers, can make us stiff and tired because our bodies are made to move. With Embody, designers Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber set out to solve this problem.
More than 30 physicians and PhDs in the fields of biomechanics, vision, physical therapy, and ergonomics contributed their expertise to help guide the development of this chair. As a result, Embody has set a new benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement in ergonomic seating.
You feel Embody’s Pixelated Support™ the moment you sit down—a sense that you are floating, yet perfectly balanced. Thanks to a dynamic matrix of pixels, Embody’s seat and back surfaces automatically conform to your body’s micro-movements, distributing your weight evenly as you sit. This reduces pressure and encourages movement, both of which are key to maintaining healthy circulation and focus.
Embody’s back is designed like yours, with a central spine and flexible ribs. The Backfit™ adjustment allows you to tune the backrest in line with your spine’s natural curve, so you achieve a neutral, balanced posture. Once the chair is tuned to fit you, the backrest adapts to your movement, adjusting automatically to your shifting positions. Whether you lean forward or recline, support remains constant.
Form doesn’t just follow function with Embody. Function is on full display. Every part of the chair was designed to serve a very specific, healthful purpose. Embody’s technology isn’t hidden, but is instead part of its aesthetic. The Backfit adjustment lets the chair’s back embrace your spine’s unique curves, holding your head in alignment with your technology. Embody’s tilt technology keeps your back at a proper angle to the seat, allowing your body to move naturally into the most healthful seated postures while keeping your pelvis stable. Embody’s narrow backrest lets your arms and shoulders move unimpeded. This movement helps open your lungs and encourages deeper breathing and more focused thinking.
