luce overview

luce multi-purpose seating is developed in collaboration with the italian industrial design firm, giugiaro design. the luce uses the technologies created for the leopard that provides a perfect fit with your body throughout all postural changes from sitting to standing. its “smart relaxation” mechanism absorbs most of the impact from your body when you sit down and provides a relaxing softness under you, regardless of your height or weight. this chair is particularly suitable for active work scenarios where you are required to stand up frequently and are rarely seated for a long time. in addition to its use as an ergonomic multi-purpose office chair, it is also an attractive item for the home. with its distinctive forward-leaning shape, the luce was the product of research into improved seat-cradle design undertaken by a collaboration with okamura, experts in advanced seating design, and OKI, specialists in robot applied technology.
