The Cruise & Atlas workstation is a well-coordinated system of computer table and office chair, placing particular emphasis upon comfort and ergonomics in the workplace. The Atlas chair features a flexible mesh fabric, a wide headrest and a broad variety of adjustment options. Due to the unusually low sitting position and a special reclining seat function, the body weight shifts farther to the large-surface backrest than in the usual upright sitting position; in this way, the strain on arms, shoulders and neck is significantly reduced. At the same time, the reclining position promotes blood circulation and prevents swelling of the legs, allowing more relaxed working and better focusing upon computer work. The two-part Cruise table can be easily adjusted in height and tilted steplessly; this allows to adapt the table to any special reclining position of the Atlas chair. All control levers are easily accessible from underneath the main table. The back table plate serves to set up and mount computer and monitor(s). The rounded, slightly transparent partition walls firmly affixed to the table create a personal atmosphere.
