For the active traditionalist
An evolved take on the classic desk chair, the European designed Futu has it all: beautiful styling, ergonomic design, exceptional engineering, and a minimal carbon footprint that has earned it a number of sustainability accolades.
Balance to relieve back pain
Though it may not have the immediate appearance of an active sitting chair, Futu has HÅG’s patented “Balance Movement Mechanism,” which uniquely puts the pivot point of the chair directly under the center of the seat pan. By re-adjusting your body’s center of gravity while sitting, this Balance feature works intuitively to shift the weight off your tailbone, engage your legs and core, and then redistribute it throughout the rest of your body.
Instead of just the seat back tilting, the whole chair—back and seat pan—is connected in rocking, leaning, reclining harmony to keep your body comfortable and engaged so your mind can stay focused on your work.
The edge of the seat pan is sloped like a waterfall. This waterfall, working in unison with the Balance Movement Mechanism, lets you tilt forward to drop your knees below your hips, better align your spine, thus shifting the weight off your tailbone and relieving the pressure from your lower back.
Simple, but not simplistic
Unlike some of the more expensive adjustable task chairs, Futu really focused on simplicity. Understanding these adjustments rarely get set properly, Futu’s Balance system was designed to just work intuitively regardless of body shape and size. Therefore, 90% of Futu sitters should not have to adjust anything beyond seat height. Futu even takes upholstery to the next level, with a polyester knit specially developed to retain its tautness for years—and years—of comfort and support. Proudly manufactured for over 50 years in the remote town of Røros, Norway, Futu comes with a 10-year warranty.
