The Ergonomics That You Don't Know About
The normal human body has three physiological curvatures. Due to physiological requirements, they do not grow in one straight line. The thoracic vertebrae is convex, and the cervical and lumbar vertebrae are convex forward. From side view, the spine looks like two “S” are connected together.
In order to balance the pressure of the lumbar spine and reduce the muscle tension of lower back, the lumbar spine must be effective supported.
Work Smart, Work Well
To solve people`s sitting problems , the designer started to define the function of ORCA. As the designer Hans Thyge Raunkjaer said: There could have chairs with many kinds of functions and appearances, but there is only one principle which is ergonomics. We are constantly optimizing to help people work more comfortably in their own way.
Our aim is help you work smart, work well and work in your way.

Follow the movements of your spine and pelvis, the backrest of ORCA could be individually calibrated to your movements which provides optimal support for each area of your back.
31 experiments of lumbar support engineering, 12 times of prototype making, repeated structural tests, only for the extraordinary sitting experience
The backrest of ORCA fits closely with the physiological curvature of user`s spine which provides fully support while accommodating different body sizes to achieve the healthy sitting posture. Our engineer tested the structures repeatedly and made adjustments from different experiments accordingly until achieving the best visual and sitting experience.

Fashionable , Innovative
High Elastic , Skin-friendly
After a variety of comparisons and tests, we selected a skin-friendly and breathable mesh.This mesh is the latest development from WINTEX which is a world-renowned textile supplier. With DuPont's thermoplastic polyethylene stretch which provides excellent pressure distribution. Compared with other mesh products, its wear resistance has passed more than 100,000 times. It`s durable with high elasticity as well as great comfort.
