Sitting for long periods of time is often necessary in today’s world of work, but it takes a physical and mental toll. Embody addresses this common problem—and is the only chair that actually improves your health while you sit. It sets the benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement in ergonomic seating. Designed with the input of more than 30 physicians and PhDs in biomechanics, vision, physical therapy, and ergonomics, the chair remains a favourite among ergonomists and serious sitters.

The benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement
A new benchmark
More than 20 physicians and PhDs in the fields of biomechanics, vision, physical therapy, and ergonomics contributed their expertise to help guide the development of this chair. As a result, Embody has set a new benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement in ergonomic seating.
You feel Embody’s Pixelated Support the moment you sit down—a sense that you are floating, yet perfectly balanced. Thanks to a dynamic matrix of pixels, Embody’s seat and back surfaces automatically conform to your body’s micro-movements, distributing your weight evenly as you sit.
Embody’s back is designed like a human’s, with a central spine and flexible ribs. The Backfit adjustment allows you to position the backrest in line with your spine’s natural curve, so you achieve a neutral, balanced posture. Whether you lean forward or recline, support remains constant.
PostureFit SL and 8Z Pellicle represent a higher level of ergonomic expertise and state-of-the-art support to improve the experience for the sitter. Together they create total spinal support – calculated, localised support that moves the skeletal system into a position that provides ultimate spinal support.
Layers of intelligence
The Embody seat is comprised of four different support layers—each with its own set of material properties, and each created with a different manufacturing process, all working together, orienting themselves to your shape with a degree of fidelity so high they even accommodate pockets..
