An Office Chair Design Takes Its Cues from Luxury Vehicles
The designer of the Porsche 911 helped create this luxurious office chair
Positive Posture decided to try something new for its latest model: collaborate with someone from a completely different area of design. The company calls the result a breakthrough in chair design. In fact, its website names Vaya as the “most comfortable office chair on Earth.”
Award-winning designer Ken Okuyama, known for his work on car models like the Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche 911, brought his unique knowledge of sports cars to the design of Vaya. Motion definitely plays a role in the comfort of the chair. A driver in a car wants to feel comfortable as he-she sits through traffic, turns and stops. Vaya is engineered to adjust to the user’s “every movement” and create comfort no matter your sitting position.
