LEAN is multifunctional furniture system that responds to the needs of a contemporary workday-life, stimulating both body and mind, while overlaying different functions in the office environment. With the aim to avoid sitting for long periods of time while working, this modular furniture arrangement provides a dynamic exchange between sitting, standing and leaning to encourage movement and posture change as well as provide social interaction.
By developing versatile ergonomic uses, the system allows comfortable standing or elevated seating. The designs are ideal for leaning and lounging, and the furniture invites people to move out of the static sitting routine during temporary working, relaxing, phoning, meeting and communicating.
LEAN reflects harmony between work, individual well-being, group gathering and “standing / leaning meetings”, thus creating an unconventional and multifaceted usage of furniture in future office landscapes.
