Sphere office chair by Okamura

Dezeen Showroom: Japanese office furniture brand Okamura is launching a chair

Dezeen Showroom: Japanese office furniture brand Okamura is launching a chair made using recycled fishing nets salvaged from the ocean.

Launching at Chicago design fair NeoCon 2023 in June, the Sphere chair features a "3D physical fit shell" with a kinematic structure that adapts to the contours of the user's body, enabling long sitting periods without discomfort or fatigue.

The chair's upholstery is made from Okamura's Re:net material, which is made using recycled fishing nets taken from the Japanese ocean. The chair itself also has a high level of recyclability, according to Okamura.

To maximise comfort, the chair's seat depth, reclining tension and armrests are intended to be easily adjusted.

An ankle-tilt reclining function also helps to ensure that the user's posture is kept in a natural position whether upright or reclined.

"The Sphere chair is a modern and innovative seating solution that caters to the needs of today's workplace," said Okamura.

"Regardless of their body size or shape, Sphere is dedicated to providing unrivalled comfort and support to its user."

Sphere is also available with a fixed armrest with an angled surface to facilitate using a smartphone or tablet.
