Key features

With the appearance of noble elegance, Galileo's inner life defines the technology of sitting once again. High-tech meets Lifestyle: a unique combination of aesthetically pleasing vibrancy and ergonomically centred innovation that everyone has to experience. Galileo's design has been created by the architect and lecturer – Françoise-Hélene Jourda. The main principle of her work is the ideal balance between design and technology. The result is a statement of the easiness of being.

Better working

Since GLIDE-TEC+ keeps you moving and ensures comfortable working in each sitting position at the same time, which is due to the fact that your hands keep constant contact with the writing surface or keyboard.

Better sitting

Since your back needs movement, also when you sit down. With the unique lordosis & kyphosis patented GLIDE-TEC+ mechanism, the chair enables the ergonomically desirable change between the hollow and round back and supports your back in every sitting position.
 

Better relaxing

Since with GLIDE-TEC+ you stay fit, also at the end of a long working day. Our sitting technology prevents you from active stress in each sitting position – the neck is not overstretched, the head stays fresh.

Four worldwide valid patents are integrated into the inner life of Galileo. Galileo innovation stands for the patents for supported lordosis & kyphosis movement in the back, the 3-dimensionally moveable backrest, sitting depth adjustment as well as automatic weight setting.

Francoise Helene Jourda

She was born on 26 November 1955 in Lyon, France. She earned a diploma in architecture in 1979. She has received many awards and honours, such as the Knight of the French National Order of Merit, the Arts et Lettres medal, and the honorary membership of the BDA (the Association of German Architects). Her project "éNergie zérO" in Saint Denis from 2008 was the first fully energy-efficient building in France.

Specification

GALILEO – the chair with the novel patented GLIDE-TEC+ mechanism.
This novel mechanism moves the seat so that it follows your every movement. The position of the backrest is synchronised with the seat movement and automatically adjusts to fit the changed spinal column shape. The backrest changes to a copy of your spinal column and gives support to every single vertebra. It gives you no counter pressure where you don’t want it. It gives you support where you need it. It adjusts itself automatically to your back and your individual movement.Therefore, don’t expect complicated adjustments with Galileo – everything happens automatically – intelligent sitting comfort – patented worldwide.

Galileo – 4 patents for innovative sitting:

  • patent for supporting lordosis & kyphosis movement for the back,
  • patent for a 3-dimensionally manoeuvrable backrest,
  • patent for seat depth adjustment,
  • patent for automatic weight adjustment.
