This is a smart chair design by Michael D’amato to create a comfortable seating, especially at back area. Michael D’amato asked by his brother that had some back problems but must sits all day for work. This chair is solid but flexible with curve shape in right place, offers a comfortable position for the user. The back and seating are split in the middle to the leg, create two areas that allows your body to move independently from the other creating a perfect position for your body.
“As a biomechanical engineer, I recognized that splitting the chair into two independent halves would cradle and integrate with each half of the body; allowing natural biomechanical movements. For example, when we twist our torso to reach for something or to stretch while sitting, our hips rotate and push one leg in front of the other. Chairs with solid seats and backs restrict that natural movement of the body. Splitting the chair allows these subtle but important biomechanical movements…and the result is an incredible feeling of freedom while sitting. ”
This chair is comes in several colors that can be chosen. You can choose the color you like. For the material, he use aluminum for the early version and bamboo for the new version.
