The Orangebox AllowMe chair story emerged after Simon Dennehy and Phil Hamilton of Dublin’s Perch Design asked themselves, ‘How can we make a chair that beautifully mimics dynamic human movement?’
The practice wanted to create a beautifully simple chair that would move fluidly with the user... An ergonomic chair that would improve comfort and wellbeing by promoting continuous low-threshold movement and active-dynamic sitting, for any size or shape of user, built around pelvic rotation and hip abduction.
Applying engineering ingenuity and creative thinking to basic modelling techniques and materials. The result was a chair back involving a single piece of geometry based on a helical sprung section, providing progressive resistance during the natural recline movement of the user, regardless of their shape or size.
With nothing other than one manual control in the form of height adjustment, in partnership with Orangebox was also to promote better posture and comfort in a variety of typical settings from casual reclined collaborative sitting and right-angled task sitting, right up to an elevated perch touch down position.
