The standards are wrong.
Why are all international norms representing the sitting position wrong?
Below are examples of various international standards for the ideal sitting position.
While reviewing these standards, I always wonder if their creators at least tried to perform any school activity in these sitting positions, such as writing or reading…
I’m afraid they didn’t, as thenit would turn out to be unrealistic and the items would be just an abstract.
Luckily for us, more and more scientists discover that our body is made for movement, and when designing seating furniture, we should include this movement in the assumptions and design guidelines.
In office armchairs it is quite simple and has been going on for many years, these armchairs have many adjustments and mechanisms that allow us to easily change the sitting position. Unfortunately, the situation among school chairs is a bit different, because they are still neglected. Fortunately there are exceptions and more and more is being said about introducing movement into schools.
The holme chair was designed from the outset to allow students to change positions, it has an active working position and a comfortable listening position.
The position for active work is a position in which the seat is tilted forward, thanks to which we bring the student closer to his work – it is easier for him to read and write without slouching Additionally, this position changes the angle of rotation of the pelvis, helping the spine to be it’s in natural position.
