Through basic experimentation, these masterpieces were created. Sculptor and Artist Harry Bertoia was experimenting with form and space. He wanted to create works of art, or sculptures, that were functional as well eye pleasing. By using the concept of bending metal into functional art, a completely new style of furniture was created.
Because of its design, the ergonomic kneeling chair allows the person sitting in the chair a previously unseen freedom of movement in furniture. One-at-a-time, the feet can be alternately placed on the ground to provide a stretch to the hamstrings. In this position, one knee remains on the kneeling chair's shin pad while the other leg extends with minimal bend to the knee. This hamstring stretch releases not only the leg muscles but also the hips, which ultimately result in back pain. Also, a foot can be placed on the shin pad to get an effective stretch to the backs of the hips and IT band. A rolling ergonomic chair allows for an accentuation of these stretches as the 360 degree mobility will allow for more stretching intensity and more angles of stretching. The sitter can exercise lateral stretching by swiveling the chair either to the left or right, giving relief and extension to the side ribs and oblique muscles. This mobile freedom gives the chair an advanced approach to ergonomic health.
