The contemporary cobi swivel chair with integrated armrests features a compact and light design. Its concept displays a plain and likable style with an accent on light colouring. The technically mature seating furniture offers ergonomically appropriate free moving space. The conceptual design provides only one single manual control element. An intuitive weight-activated mechanism automatically responds to each movement thus supporting individual seating positions. As soon as the user pushes his arm against the backrest, the upper edge made of comfortable elastomer – an elastic plastic material – is yielding. cobi surprises with its innovative seat shell that flexes on three sides. In addition, it features a breathable knit material at the backrest. Altogether, all these functions allow for dynamic seating intended to provide an invigorating effect.
