Running to sit with X-Code


January 1st, 2016

The future of seating is now, with the X-Code office chair. The Dauphin HumanDesign Group and designer Daniel Figueroa worked with ergonomics experts to design the chair.

X-Code moulds around the sitter with a striking backrest made up of a sturdy plastic shell and flexible tensioned membrane, complemented by an adaptable slatted structure. This makes the backrest transparent and breathable.

The chairs functions determine their overall aesthetic style in a wonderful marriage of form and function. The horizontal gaps in the backrest both provide support and ventilation, but are also one of the most striking characteristic features of the X-Code. The X-Code product family offers a wide range of functions along with numerous individual configuration choices.

The technology of the chair is inspired from the modern sport sector, a pioneer in the field of design. Designer Daniel Figueroa and the ergonomics experts from Dauphin worked closely together to come up with the seamless backrest fabric.

This backrest fabric is the heart of the chair design, which allows for active yet relaxed posture, saving the user of the typical symptoms of fatigue.
