In South-Eastern countries, it is more common for people to sit cross-legged on the floor than to sit on chairs. Not only is this an integral part of their culture, but it is supposed to be quite good for the posture too! Drawing inspiration from the tradition of his country, Iranian designer Arsalan Ghadimi created the Lunule Chair.
Featuring a wooden frame with leather-lined cushions, the chair incorporates the tradition of sitting cross-legged. Its circular form provides the perfect structure to place the lower half of our bodies onto, with sufficient space for our knees and legs as well! The doughnut-like seat evenly distributes the force exerted upon our body when we sit, enabling us to maintain a solid posture. A backrest with a soft foam cushion can be attached to the Lunule Chair, paired up with the already ergonomic form of the chair, this provides further support to our caudal vertebrae and waist.

This is a seat with a curved surface shape, people can easily achieve cross legged sitting by it. This seat ware can effectively distribute the force of the buttocks of the human body evenly to the outside of the knee and the thigh. Even if keeping long time this posture, we will not feel tired. The back can feel the support of the caudal vertebrae, increasing the support of the waist. This design is not only a reflection of culture, but also a study of ergonomics.

Not to mention, it’s a healthy break for our bodies from the uptight and non-ergonomic chair designs found today…your body and posture will thank you!
