The ID Chair Concept offers countless customisation options to suit individual users. Different variations of the FlowMotion mechanism, a selection of backrests, armrests, seats and bases, along with a broad array of colours and fabrics, enable every user and company to find the perfect ID Chair – whether for an open-plan setting, individual or team offices, conference areas or management offices. Despite the many possible variations, it always remains essentially the same chair in look and construction – with benefits for companies in terms of aesthetics, maintenance and service.

A study by the Institute for Biomechanics at ETH Zurich – one of the most renowned universities worldwide – showed that the ID Chair's scope of movement is fully utilised. EMG measurements (electromyography) confirmed that intuitive use of the weight-dependent forward tilt mechanism activates core muscles in the abdomen and back. This boosts the metabolism and stabilises the lumbar column. MRI/MRT measurements (magnetic resonance imaging) proved that the forward tilt function triggers movement in all segments of the lower spine. This relieves pressure and enhances the diffusion of nutrients to the intervertebral discs. These dynamic sitting features actively prevent health problems.

The soft seat and supportive backrest ensure great comfort. With optional Clima Seat fleece integrated in the seat, pleasant thermal conditions are maintained for up to eight times longer than with conventional seat surfaces.

The ID Chair Concept consists of the following basic types: ID Air, ID Mesh, ID Soft, ID Soft L, ID Trim, ID Trim L and ID Trim, each with different backrests.
