Ergonomic sitting combined with design.
Today, modern people sit more than 80.000 hours during their lives. Scientific studies prove that sitting is an independent risk factor for different health problems.
In this context, it makes sense to focus on the essential ergonomic requirements of the sitting quality. In contrast to straight / even horizontal surfaces, the new nature inspired concept of concave indentations of the “Tidelands Bench” by GERSTENBERGER® offers the possibility to sit in an ergonomic, comfortable and fatigue-free way.
The origin of the German word “sitzen” (to sit) is the Latin verb “sedere” that can also be translated with “to soothe”.

Where the elements earth and water meet, sometimes lovingly, sometimes fighting, the close observer will find structures and surfaces that are the result of this eternal competition. Those who have paused at the border between water and sand, felt the caressing of the waves, know of the comforting embrace of the elements. The emotionally exaggerated design language urges to compare the visual and haptic elements, exhibiting the power of the tides. Take a seat and close your eyes.
The careful handling of resources becomes evident by the knots, checks and other characteristics of the wood that are incorporated into the design process. The concave indentations are refined by hand to guarantee a unique haptic experience.
