Herman Miller Embody Chair

Business today depends upon innovation, creativity, ideas. So we had an idea: design a chair that helps you innovate, create and come up with the ideas that keep your company growing – minds and bodies in motion. Because movement promotes blood and oxygen flow, which keeps the brain more focused and functional. Embody will move you.

Medical research suggests that our sedentary lifestyles, especially long hours of sitting, contribute to obesity and the negative outcomes associated with it: diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and mortality [1]. Yes, we should all exercise more, but the truth is that sitting for hours every day in front of a computer is a fact of life that won't change any time soon.
