Comfortable collaboration.

We created a whole new category of seating products designed specifically for the needs of collaboration. The cobi chair was designed specifically to foster collaboration and was based on three key research observations that resulted in three key insights:

  • Chairs should promote movement and be comfortable for long periods of time
  • Adjustments should be automatic and intuitive
  • Chairs should support multiple postures

The cobi chair encourages movement and supports a variety of postures. With only one adjustment (seat height), and a mechanism that’s weight activated and senses and supports your own center of gravity, anyone can get comfortable quickly.

  • Flexing Top Edge

    Allows users to rest their arm on top of the chair, supporting a variety of postures.
  • Seat Height

    Accommodates different heights and leg lengths. To raise chair, lift body weight up and pull lever up. To lower chair, remain seated and pull lever up.
  • Flexing back

    Provides comfort and support, while contouring to any posture the body needs.
  • Flexing seat

    Encourages users to move and shift, allowing users to sit centered or off to the sides.
  • Weight-Activated Mechanism

    Sensing your center of gravity, it adjusts to the position that will put the least amount of stress on your body, while still keeping you properly oriented and supported.
  • Fabric Colors
