The Design Concept behind TEC Office Chair

What happened when you press into a sponge?

You press, then it recover, how lively it is….this gives designer David Liu an idea to redefine how people interact with chairs. What if we can make a chair that acted like this, absorbing the impact of the sitter, and constantly pampering and supporting? This is where TEC kinematic chair begins.

Ultimate evolution from a conventional static chair, TEC adapts to the user also improving their posture. With the new, dynamic and responsive chair now available, why go back to the old static?

TEC’s artful sculpted back provides instant comfort and keeps in contact with your spine from the moment you sit down. Moreover, the signature slats in the back permit flexing and respond actively to the motions of the body, while the user sits, works and moves throughout the day.

TEC mirrors natural body movements to provide the ultimate in sitting comfort, encourages movement, relaxation and enhanced circulation.

Unlike the conventional plastic chair which features two pieces of a hard material attached as back and seat to one another at a 90°angle, the back of the TEC-series is in a convex shape, not flat vertical. It consists of multiple slats with different lengths and thickness, adjacent to one another to form a convex face that contours the shape of a human spine.

This amazing design enables a human back to match completely with the chair back while seated. This built-in lumbar back support helps maintain natural inward curvature of the lower spine; thus, alleviate back pain, reduce fatigue and allow natural shifts in seating posture.
