One concept, more than 8,000 chairs: With the ID Chair Concept, everyone will find the office swivel chair that is right for them. All of the chairs are ergonomic. A study carried out at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich supports this claim. Companies benefit from the aesthetics, which bring about a unified visual appearance, and from the Green User Agreement, a comprehensive service offer that ensures long-term use of the ID Chair Concept.
