How do you get a good looking task chair that is environmentally sensitive and lets users set personal comfort levels within superior human engineering standards?

You let form follow science — and get Zody.

Meet Zody, the high-performance task chair that blends science-based wellness and comfort with international design and unmatched sustainability.

Over two years of persistent research and development led to the product design innovations that are Zody. Its revolutionary asymmetrical lumbar support system is a result of a joint study between Haworth and The Human Performance Institute of Western Michigan University. Approximately 70% of all test participants made one thing very clear: controlling the degree of support on either side of their lower back was the key to comfort. From this has come Zody’s PAL® back system, combining asymmetrical lumbar adjustment, passive pelvic support, and a host of ergonomic refinements — a revolutionary step forward in office seating.

Zody: The First and Only

First (and Only) Chair ever endorsed by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)
First Chair to be Cradle to Cradle™ Gold Certified Product by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry.
First Chair with Assymetric Lumbar and PAL™, a passive pelvic support, and a patent-pending user-selected asymmetrical lumbar support.

Lumbar and PAL

When seated, the hips tend to roll backward, causing a poor seated posture. PAL promotes a slight forward rotation of the hips, which helps the user maintain the natural arch in their lower spine. This position also promotes a proper use of the lumbar mechanism. The lumbar is height and pressure adjustable to allow the user to dial-in the amount of support needed. The pressure can be adjusted on each side independently, which our research indicates is preferable for about 70% of users.

Seat Details

The edges and seat foam are essential aspects of Zody's comfort. The waterfall edge was designed to relieve typical pressure points around the perimeter of the seat that restrict bloodflow and cause longterm dissatisfaction. Zodys seat is designed to provide a unique level of comfort for a variety of individuals and positions that allow the user to find their comfort zone. The seat seat is a plush foam that is guaranteed not to break down during the warranty period or we'll replace it. A seat that has molded to the user is not dissipating pressure well and will create pressure points. A seat that has formed to the shape of the user should be replaced.

Actively Fitting You

The back frame has 2" of torsional flex to move with the user while they twist and work. This support enhances Zodys other features, like the asymmetric lumbar, by moving with the user as they sit towards one side of the chair.

Zody’s proprietary suspension mesh is a thin, breathable 100% polyester woven fabric designed to work in concert with the lumbar pad and pelvic support. Several studies were completed to identify appropriate upper and lower back mesh tensions which provide users with continuous support.

Zodys 4D arms adjust in height, in width, front-to-back, in-to-out, and pivot. Zody as a whole is designed to fit the 5-to-95th percentile of users physical profiles, and the arms a big part of fitting both users physical statures, and also postures and workstyles, comfortably.

Excellence In All Aspects

Manufactured using 100% Wind Power credits in our Zero-Waste to landfill Mississippi facility, Zody is made from up to 51% recyclable material. It is 95% recyclable at the ends of its life; with out takeback program, send it to us and we'll take care of the rest. We don't anticipate that happening anytime soon, as it is covered under our 12 Year, 24/7, multiple-shift warranty up to 325lbs. Zody is BIFMA Level 3 and Greenguard Gold certified.

Care & Maintenance

Seat Fabric and Back Mesh
These fabrics are colorfast when using standard wet and dry cleaning processes and are also resistant to most spot-cleaning solvents.

     Dry soils: vacuum surfaces regularly to prevent sand, dust, ash, and dry dirt from being worked into the fabrics.
     Wet soils: use commercially available water-based upholstery detergents to clean mud, spills, food, and so on. Follow directions on package.
     Oily spills: grease, tar, greasy foods, etc. may require cleaning with a solvent cleaner or solvent-fortified detergent. Follow directions on package.

A blotting technique should remove most spots. Avoid brushing or rubbing to prevent pilling of the fabric surface.

Leather
Most stains can be removed with lukewarm water and a mild soap. Then wipe the leather with a damp cloth and dry with a soft, dry cloth. Saddle soaps, polish, or wax should never be used. For general maintenance, dust the leather surface just as you would furniture.

Polymer
Use a mild detergent and warm water; apply with a soft clean cloth. Hard scrubbing with brushes may harm the surface so is not recommended. Remove any soapy residue with clean water and clean cloth.

Metal
Clean with lukewarm water and a mild detergent as needed. After washing, rinse with clean water on a soft cloth, and dry with a clean soft cloth.
