Cobi seating was designed to foster collaboration and promote movement.

Part of our new category of collaborative seating, the cobi chair was designed specifically to foster collaboration and was based on three key insights:

  1. Chairs should promote movement and be comfortable for long periods of time
  2. Adjustments should be automatic and intuitive
  3. Chairs should support multiple postures
