design: Peter Opsvik. 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.
