The pendulum movement of the Actulum makes it an all-rounder chair for work, dining and leisure. Inspired by the comfort of recliners, the designer created a chair for any table or desk that provides optimal flow and relaxation. The wooden runners follow your body’s natural movements, while the flexible joint of the backrest lets you lean backwards effortlessly. This subtle activity strengthens core muscles and prevents tension in neck and shoulders.
Norwegian industrial designer, Peter Opsvik, is known as the foremost designer behind ergonomic seating. Drawing inspiration from Hans Christian Mengshoel’s balans® concept, Opsvik created unconventional seating solutions that emphasize movement and variation. This freedom to move defines his award-winning chairs, whether for the office, children or for leisure. Opsvik works together with seven colleagues in his Oslo-based studio, where they focus on product design as a means for solving real-life problems.
