Dining room chairs

The dining room as back-friendly focal point of family life

Habits in the family setting have changed in the course of time. The tradition used to be to entertain guests in the cosy living room, the heart of every home. Dining rooms were only used for eating.

Today, many use their dining room as additional living space. Many houses are designed with an open-plan dining and living area. Dining rooms are increasingly becoming the focal point of family life, somewhere to remain seated after dinner - both with guests or cosily with the family.

Not just comfortable and convenient but also ergonomic

Accordingly, demands are changing in terms of functionality for upholstered furniture in both living rooms and dining rooms. The furniture should be ergonomically appropriate, as well as comfortable and convenient. Seats that adapt to the individual needs of the user have a positive effect on well-being and spinal health.

Encouraging movement

Given our basic human need to move, a dining room chair must not only fit a wide range of different people but also encourage dynamic sitting. This satisfies our unconscious urge to keep moving while relieving the pressure on the spinal column and intervertebral discs. It also helps our muscles and has a positive impact on our mental state of mind. The movement mechanics should therefore permit an active and also a passive sitting position. Dynamic movement in the actual seat and/or backrest is therefore appropriate. It is possible to change position with harmonious swinging. The contour of the backrest must correspond to the anatomic shape of the lumbar spine.


  • The dining chairs must be suitable for people of many different shapes and sizes and permit dynamic, ergonomic sitting that is also relaxing, pleasant and comfortable at the same time.
  • There must be support for the torso in the rear sitting position.
  • The chair should offer a sitting height of between 44 and 50 cm with a seat depth of between 43.5 and 48.5 cm. The minimum seat width should be about 42 cm.
  • The product must allow active sitting. It must therefore be possible to tilt the seat forwards and backwards; the chair should have a dynamic backrest or other suitable solutions.
  • The padding for the seat and backrest must be permeable with micro climate-friendly properties.

  • Sitting height approx. 44 to 50 cm (slightly higher for yielding upholstery)
  • Seat depth approx. 43.5 to 48.5 cm
  • Minimum seat width approx. 42 cm
  • Lordosis supports/anatomically shaped backrest
