About the project.

The Magnus Olesen i-SIT chair is a break with the previous situation on the market where the consumer is forced to choose either ergonomics or design. With the i-SIT, design concern have created a reclining chair that unites aesthetics and functionality.

In the development process, seniors and differently abled users, e.g. people with back problems, weak wrists or arthitis, have been the focus of the user surveys. The Magnus Olesen i-SIT have thus become a reclining chair for everyone to sit comfortably in regardless of age, height, weight and physical ability.

The i-SIT has an easy and simple Scandinavian form with a unique design that makes an impression in 360 degrees. At the same time, the list of ergonomic functionality is long.

The seats width and inclination is tuned to fit all users well while the seating height makes it easy to get out of the chair. The chair’s back has a stepless adjustment with a button for operation by the armrest. At the same time, the chair’s back follows the hips rotational point naturally when one is reclining in the chair. 

Furthermore, the chair has an integrated pillow that can also be adjusted according to the user needs which ensures maximum comfort. 

The users are crazy about the fully upholstered i-SIT chair. And the design chair has received two international design prizes and a shortlisting.
