The RBT Task Chair is just what people working a nine to five (or longer) desk job need. Utilizing Responsive Back Technology (RBT), the chair ensures that they get the best back support they can to ensure that they don't do any unnecessary damage to their body while remaining sedentary for so long.

Designed by Zooey Chu and Gary Bacon of Synergy Product Development for Teknion, the RBT Task Chair resembles a spinal column, which further drives home its ergonomic message. It aims to correct people's posture while sitting by conforming to the curves of their own spine. Essentially, the RBT Task Chair continuously readjusting the sitter's back throughout the day.

Set to debut at NeoCon in Chicago during June, the RBT Task Chair is as visually appealing as it is comfortable. Stats for Responsive Backrest Seating Trending: Older & Chilly
