The LIFE chair adapts to you, making movement easy. It responds and adapts to your body - allowing you to keep working without having to worry about adjustments. Because of its light, luminescent quality the LIFE chair complements the office surrounding it rather than dominating it. LIFE analyses body weight and automatically adjusts to hold you in balance as you recline. A flexing seat and back for the perfect balance of dynamic movement and structural stability - automatically. Superb comfort as the suspension fabric moulds to your shape providing even load spread across your entire back (not just in the lumbar region). Low-profile chair base provides a comfortable resting place for your feet. Life is also independantly certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) and Environmental Choice New Zealand (ECNZ).


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.
