What was the inspiration behind the product?

Linq is based on the concept of organic engineering: this chair was fabricated from the very beginning with functionality, comfort, and optimal design in mind. Linq’s design is centered upon a movement that follows the body’s natural movement with a simple efficient structure that is intelligent and can adapt to the form and weight of the user. This user-centric design delivers increased flexibility and dynamic support for all day use. Designer, Jonathan Prestwich, describes his inspiration for Linq as follows:

“I wanted to make a chair that moved and followed the human form. A chair that articulated in a simple way and was made up of only the bare necessity ofparts. I also wanted to make a clever chair. An object that through its materials and geometry was intelligent enough to measure the person sitting down and react accordingly. The best products are of their time — relevant to the needs of the people at that moment. As technology in the beginning of the 21st century started having a real effect on the shape of the office, a chair was needed that dealt with the change in behavior.”
