Peter Opsvik has been working his entire design life in ergonomic design. In his oponion furniture should be following the human body and primary comfort comes with a healthy body. This is a very different way of desigin furniture.

In the 1985’s Opsvik looked at “manners”. ‘We should take more heed of what our bodies are telling us, and be less concerned with convention. That is why from the beginning of the 1980s it was essential to demolish the stereotype ideal of the proper sitting posture. To get this message out, Opsvik created a number of products whose impact was more important than they use value. Their purpose was to arouse sympathy for a more free use of the body. Garden chair was developed for that message. The early 1985 designs where with a round foot. Later the chair has been taken into re-production with a different foot.

By almost climbing on the chair, the seating in any wished for position is surprisingly comfortable because of the way the chair can support our body parts. This is a original 1980s object in very good condition consistent with age and use.
