Abstract

There is a significant information gap between users and seating developers. To bridge the gap, The Seating Clinic and Design Studio was established in 1999 at Waseda University. The purpose of the Studio is to select or design a well-fitting chair for each individual. Seating problems are also solved. This Studio is divided into two sections: The first section is concerned with the measurement and the development of seating. The second section is a showroom of recommended office chairs. This showroom is open to the public and users can learn the best way to sit on a chair and how to adjust a chair. This paper will report how the gap was bridged.
