The Contura was originally made as a concept chair for SAS airlines by award-winning designer Svein Asbjornsen. The designer envisioned this as the most comfortable way to spend 8 hours in an airline seat ‚¬â€œ fully supported and floating as you fly. The chair never made it to the airplane but Hjellegjerde picked up the award-winning design and decided to put it into production.
A lever allows the chair to recline back, and locks in any position. Using your body weight it can glide way back, in to a Zero Gravity position ‚¬â€œ the most relaxing comfortable position there is. This Zero Gravity technology was first designed by NASA scientists. This is the position they created for astronauts as they blast off. IN this position the feet are the same level as the heart in order to eliminate compression on the spine.
Sitting in a Contura will mean less spinal pressure, less muscle tension, better lung capacity and circulation. It will literally make you feel healthier. Just sit in it and you'll feel amazingly good. And Contura features the Active System so your head will always be level.
The Contura comes with a height adjustable headrest that you can move to make yourself more comfortable. It's also a Manual Tilt Headrest so you can adjust the angle to your favorite position as well. Simply pull forward or push back to adjust.
The base is available in wood or aluminum, and in a variety of fabrics, leathers and colors.
