Kneeling Chairs allows the user to be in a kneeling position while it supports most of the user’s body weight. This foldable chair is inspired by the kneeling-like sitting position that one adopts during Zen meditation. In ancient times, kneeling is the traditional posture, instead of sitting. It is a representation of elegance, tranquillity and serenity. The design of Kneeling Chairs is based on the force analysis principle of the spine. The adoption of a sloping stool surface forces the user to straighten up the spine, which helps relax the body and mind, relieve the stress and maintain concentration.
