A TIMELESS BALANCE
A sofa is composed of functional and very different hard materials: wood, metal, natural and synthetic elastic materials, fabrics etc. which come in contact with each other through the use. Therefore in every step of the process it is fundamental to harmonize their assembling in order to avoid, for example, that the contact with a hard material as wood or iron will damage the fabric in the future. Or that the fabric of cushions will deform or easily wear out under person’s body weight. Each material, its life cycle.
CHOOSING YOUR SOFA: sit on a sofa before you buy it!
To obtain the maximum seating comfort , when sitting down on a sofa you should feel to be supported in a natural way. The dimensions of seat, back and armrest have to ensure a posture that matches the natural curves of the spine, without forgetting that comfort is given also by the possibility to adapt the sofa to one’s own needs, tastes and characteristics.
A_ FLAT SEATING POSITION
If the seating is in parallel to the floor, thence horizontal, our back is obliged to follow the backrest inclination: the body’s weight , not being in upright position, tends to slide forward for stability. Sliding forward leads to shear pressure on the buttocks and thighs. This is not relax at all as it brings to reduced postural stability and back breakdown occurs.
B_ RECLINED SEATING POSITION
When the seat is too reclined backward, pelvis and legs form a too tight angle: poor posture constricts internal organs which can cause an array of different issues as well as further aggravating the back problem.
C_ RECLINED BACKREST POSITION
When the backrest is too reclined, it is easy to become too laid back: it may actually feel a lot more comfortable at first but it takes its toll over time causing tension, straining the muscles and soft tissue, and it may result in a number of conditions and illnesses in later life. For example the difficulty rising from the sitting position is a common manifestation in elderly persons.
D_ CORRECT POSITION OF SEAT AND BACK
Seat and back must have the right angle so that internal organs shall not suffer from the minimum compression. The seat has to present a slight backward inclination in order to avoid the body’s weight sliding forward, producing balanced seating in which the back is straight, the joint angles are open and the muscles are relaxed. This position provides greater mobility and relieves pressure on the lungs and stomach. The muscles are relaxed and well-balanced. Arms and hand follow the downward slope of your thighs.
