Several of the designers' more personal ideas and values went into the original Equa design, and they are preserved in the Equa 2 chair.
Both designers believed that everyone—regardless of size, shape, or status—deserves a good, ergonomically supportive chair.
They preferred simple designs both in structure and operation.
They believed that the structure of a chair should be logical, and the materials appropriate.
Finally, both enjoyed what they called "designing by analogies." Looking at familiar designs or things they appreciate—like skis, toys, jukeboxes, bicycles, and a wide variety of other objects—and determining those qualities that make them special. Then incorporating those qualities in their designs.
