Onda chairs

Onda model: 203-OG-67CSS-FT-ONA2-27GB-16OG-4O

all mesh seating with Via comfort

The perfect balance between form and function. When one favors ergonomic function and adjustability the design of the chair tends to take a back seat. The converse is also true when aesthetic considerations take the fore front, then the ergonomic function and adjustability become less important. Onda supports both ergonomic and design philosophies and holds both in perfect harmony without any compromise. Discover instantaneous comfort personalized to the way you with with Onda—Italian for “Wave”—Via Seating’s first all mesh chair.

Seat Reference Point (SRP),
The ergonomic seat depth measurement.

 

Measurement G (and not measurement H) is the true seat reference point. SRP is an ergonomic term that defines where there is a slight indentation in the lumbar (i.e. where the sitter is benefiting from the lumbar support) to the front edge of the seat. It gives the true measurement of surface area in contact with the body. It is very useful for correctly matching up with hip to knee measurements for ergonomists taking into account the two – three finger gap between the back of the leg to the edge of the seat. It is very important to ensure no restriction in circulation to the lower extremities (lower legs and ankles).
