We feel the office world is too often seen as a mechanical world, with obvious references to robots and technicity. We feel this approach is not adapted to the reality of the office that is beforehand, a place for the people who work.
Our first idea was to create an object very ergonomic, very tech
nical and soft at the same time. Because a chair is aimed at holding a human body, it needs to be formally adapted to it. We prefer a chair that resembles a body or an animal, to a chair that looks like a machine. In the Worknest, the mechanics necessary to comfort is hidden under a textile skin that softens both the effective and the visual contact with the occupant.
