Choice of material enables ergonomics in the Bender chair.

Details: Bender, a steel rod and fibre glass chair designed by Frederik Kurzweg, eschews hydraulics and springs in favour of meticulously crafted materials to achieve the same outcome, efficient comfort for the user.

Says Kurzweg, “The human body is not built for rigid sitting on a chair over an extended period. The next seating position is the best. Therefore ergonomic seating has a significant importance for the preservation of long-term health. Modern office chairs are often feature with complex mechanisms. Hydraulic systems, steel springs or synchronization mechanisms enable us to make specified movements.”

“This concept concentrates on using the material to enable those movements. The cushioning properties of steel and the flexibility of glass fibre arrange the movement you desire with this prototype. The seat shell was manufactured in meticulously handwork in numerous production steps. The middle section got a sandwich core to be braced, the edge is shaped thin to be soft. For serial production the seat would be made of polypropylene instead of glass fibre.”
