The aeris team, the makers of the well-known swopper active chair, is very happy that the oyo swing chair has been successful among over 5000 submissions from 53 countries for this renowned iF label . The team had filed the new development in co-operation with designer Martin Ballendat (Ballendat Design) in the category Home Furniture and thus presented for the first time a concept for sitting in motion that covers both the home and office scopes.

New, courageous, and extraordinary

Susanna Kindler, CEO of aeris GmbH: "The oyo object chair is new, courageous, and extraordinary. As a worldwide first combination of saddle seat, cantilever seat, and pan seat, the oyo has become a universal "favorite spot" and stylish eye-catcher in no time at all: For the meeting table at the office and the lounge, as a multifunctional piece of furniture for aesthetic home offices, around the dinner table, for the reading nook, at the fireplace, in the winter garden, etc. The oyo wins you over with its pure layout and fascinating aesthetics. It constitutes an invitation to different sitting positions and more motion."

With this award aeris proves once more that health-stimulating functions and classy design can compliment one another in a wonderful manner. All active chairs by aeris have been granted internationally recognized design prizes and function awards. In many world markets they maintain their leading position with regard to active furniture for natural motion in everyday life.
