Today is the last day to enter your email address and go into a draw for the Embody chair. This chair began its life in the design studio of Jeff Weber and the late Bill Stumpf. They wanted to solve a problem – the lack of harmony between us and the computer we find ourselves seated at for most of our working day. Their idea? To design a chair that could do more actually have positive effects on the body. You can read the full design story here but Weber said “You can’t design without empathy. Since design has become more technology based, we’ve had to sit in our chairs in front of computers for longer periods, just like everyone else. We identify with the problems people have as a result of sitting.” Their solution to this 21st century problem was the Embody chair and you can read all about the design process here.
Our Design for You competition is winding down. Next week, next Tuesday to be exact, will be the final day you will be able to enter to win one of the five painted Eames rockers. Plus the person with the most friends and family who have signed up will win an Aeron chair. But now time is really of the essence. You’ve got until November 2 – next Tuesday. Get onto it!
