Laptops, tablets, and smartphones have given us the mobility to work where we choose. Lounge spaces that were often seen as "in-between" or "touchdown" spaces in the past are becoming the place of choice for many, as they allow users to work the way they might work in their own homes. While mobile technology has made working anywhere a possibility, the furniture often doesn't support working comfortably in a lounge posture. We created the Footrest, Skate Table, and Slim Table to help address this need by supporting your body and your technology in a lounge posture. These individual products are all great on their own, able to span many uses and applications, but were designed to come together to give users a great experience while working at lounge.
Designed for mobile workers who are constantly coming and going, this chair is the Shortcut to comfort. Truncated elbow rests provide minimal surface area, but adequate support for a variety of postures and movement while seated without getting in the way. The cutout in the seat shell allows the seatback to flex, yielding a surprising amount of comfort from a simple shell. An optional upholstered seat pad provides additional padding, materiality, and color to allow users and choosers to show their personality.

A player’s hands serve two distinct roles in wheelchair basketball: controlling the ball, and controlling the wheelchair. During gameplay players are forced to make a choice between controlling their chair or controlling the ball, a choice that can lead to crashes on the court, often resulting in injuries and damage to equipment. The Balance Sport Wheelchair gives players more hands-free control of their wheelchairs, freeing them up for stealing, blocking, passing, and shooting.

Gesture is the first chair designed to support our interactions with today's technologies. Inspired by the movement of the human body, created for the way we work today.
Until now, headrests have largely been an afterthought, but the Gesture headrest is integrated into the design. The design of the Gesture headrest takes into consideration factors such as head size, neck length and desired range of motion to support a greater range of user sizes.
Through this intentional design, the Gesture headrest not only provides comfort and support, but also offers an unprecedented range of motion. This results in more choice and control over work postures.
