Work is changing. We no longer sit still, but move continuously. Be chair by Formway offers freedom of movement and support for the range of postures and tasks you perform throughout the day.

Be is a chair that follows your lead, responding to natural human behavior. With just three standard intuitive adjustments, seat height, seat depth and recline, while all other multidirectional movements require no adjustment at all.

The Dynamic suspension offers a smooth, effortless recline motion without the need for manual tension adjustment, while the seat movement is synchronized to keep your eye line virtually constant in different sitting positions.

Be chair is available now through Zenith Nationally in a black or meteor frame with the option of onyx, firecracker, lemongrass or pebble skin. An option of a lumbar support is available along with arms, polished or nylon base and soft or hard castors.

The worlds first multi-posture, multi-mode task chair lets you BE yourself..

Formway Design

Formway Design translates key insights of human behaviour into highly desirable products. Our user-centred culture marries a rigorous design process, sensitivity to aesthetics, and a passion for the environment.

Founded in 1956, New Zealand-based Formway Design has been designing furniture for more than five decades. In 1979 the company redefined itself, developing a new identity and philosophy that focused on team-based design and extensive research.

Formways designs are informed by insight gained through observation and consideration of human behaviour.

Formway Design have been awarded numerous design awards and continues to do so, including gold product awards at the NeoCon furniture fair for the Life and Be chairs (the Be chair marketed as the Generation By Knoll chair by Knoll, Inc. in the United States), and NZ Best Design awards for the Life and Be chairs and the Hum workstation system.
