Izzy Design, also known as Izzy+, offers a wide range of ergonomic seating options. Many of these ergonomic chairs are an economic alternative to some of our higher-end ergonomic seating. These chairs offer some of the same great ergonomic design with slightly scaled features, such as nylon bases instead of aluminum or shelled backs rather than fully upholstered options.
Alternative task seating
One of the fastest growing markets in ergonomic seating is that of alternative seating. By this we mean chair designs that challenge the conventional Western seating style that has become the standard in most work places. Rather than a traditional flat front and back, these ergonomic chairs may have a saddle seat, altered back, or no back at all! These chairs promote movement and variation throughout the day and include the HAG Capisco chair, the Humanscale Saddle seat, Salli and Bamback saddle chairs, and the Varier Balans kneeling chair line. Through these designs and movement users experience increased blood flow throughout the body leading to heightened awareness and higher productivity.
The original saddle chair design is that of Peter Opsvik and the Capisco chair. The saddle seat was inspired by horseback riders who can ride all day without becoming fatigued. Research has shown that this position, open angle at the hips with feet in front of the user, allow the spine to "stack" naturally. This position reduces fatigue and common injuries experienced through extended seating. The HAG Capisco chair is joined by the Salli saddle chair, the Bamback saddle chair, the Humanscale Saddle seat, and the Varier Move stool.
The kneeling position has been popular for many years and has only recently been viewed as an acceptable style of seating in the office. Early forms of kneeling chairs were used in prayer and have evolved to the task-oriented kneeling chairs we see today. Peter Opsvik's Balans chair designs were the first to bring the kneeling chair into popular use. Like the saddle designs, the kneeling chairs allow the spine to "stack" into a natural curve while alleviating the pressure on the spinal column created in traditional chairs. The Varier Balans chairs feature wooden runners while the HAG Balans has a traditional base with casters. Now that HAG Balans chair has been discontinued, Peter Opsvik has released a statement naming the Varier Wing Balans chair as the most logical and closely-related replacement available.
