Outline

It is in the nature of the human body to be in motion at all times. Rather than remaining in a fixed position for long hours facing a desk, it is logical to assume that it would be more stimulating to the mind if your chair allowed you to sit in any position you wanted. That is the idea behind 'Tacit'. Its fun-loving design allows you to sit in whatever posture you may desire. The back of the chair and even the elbow rest can also serve as a sort of table in this 'multipad' system. Its ability to swivel around three separate axes produces interesting and unexpected motions. This kind of 'playful spirit' will likely become a more and more important function of chairs in creative offices from now on.
