This Swiss-designed ‘wearable chair’ aims to ease the discomfort of manual labourers.


The Chairless Chair® is a flexible wearable ergonomic sitting support designed by Sapettiand produced by the Swiss-based company noonee.

The main application of the Chairless Chair® is for manufacturing companies, where workers are required to stand for long periods of time and traditional sitting methods are not suitable, leading to obstacles in the work area. While wearing the Chairless Chair, users walk together with sitting support without obstructing the work space. The position also avoids strenuous postures such as bending, squatting or crouching.

During the development process, noonee and Sapetti worked closely with the employees from Audi, Seat, Skoda, Daimler, BMW and Renault, among others, to tailor the Chairless Chair to the needs of targeted end-users and the dynamic environment of production lines. This not only leads to a superior product, but also to the broad experience of the team in implementing such ergonomic innovations at well-established companies.

With the Chairless Chair, noonee's clients can not only improve the ergonomic environment for their employees by improving body posture, but also solve and prevent certain Occupational Health & Safety challenges and provide age-appropriate working conditions for their aging employees.
