Dual Density Seats
is the winner of an Australasian Design Award and is renowned for its ergonomic qualities.
The story began in the mid 1980’s when physiotherapist and company founder of Gregory Furniture Australia, Peter Gregory, was commissioned by Colgate-Palmolive to investigate injuries in the office workplace.
The culmination of his research was the unique and patented Dual Density Posture Support System, which has been recognised by ergonomists and occupational health and medical professionals as providing a superior seating solution for improved office efficiency.
Peter Gregory’s findings led to a patenting the award winning Gregory seat design Dual Density Posture Support. Dual Density features firmer foam in the front half of the seat and softer foam in the back half.
The separation of the two foam densities is indicated by the split. The pelvis gently ‘sinks’ and is supported in the softer section in the correct seating position at the back of the chair.
Firmer foam at the front discourages the pelvis from sliding forward into the slouching “C” curve of poor posture.
The moulded foam also encourages and improves blood circulation behind the thighs. With the added height adjustable lumbar support the spine is maintained in the healthy, upright “S” curve of good posture which also creates less stress on the arms, shoulders and neck throughout the day.
