Motivation comes from being able to lean back and relax during a hard working day. Switch off and free up your thoughts – no problem when you have open up in the office. Whenever you need to clear your head. Sitting, standing, lying: this elegant office chair with integrated “Similar” and dorsokinetic mechanisms makes any position possible. Freedom of movement releases the mind. The perfect inspiration for efficient working.

Sedus open up has heralded the arrival of the regenerative power nap in the office and, in combination with the unique Work assistant, makes it possible to work sitting down, standing up and lying down. This unusual swivel chair features a reclining angle of up to 45 degrees; a value which, when combined with a dorsokinetically suspended backrest, is achieved by no other chair on the market. The flexible backrest connection ideally supports the back during all rotating and lateral movements.
