It all began in 2005, when I got into a serious car accident. I was threatened with permanent consequences and even by a time in a wheelchair. But thanks to intensive work of my physiotherapists I eventually began to cope with my rehabilitation and being a chair designer and CEO of small furniture company, I started applying new findings to an entirely new product – one which would help me to sit long hours without pain.
It was necessary to abandon traditional approach to seating manufacture – I started to incorporate ergonomics laws and my own painful experience into the design. I joined forces with the very specialists that helped me with rehabilitation and designed first model of THERAPIA® – a chair made for those who want to prevent problems tied to long term sitting. I tested it intensively on myself and discovered that each day, I was feeling better and better. At first, my body was not used to the unique shape of THERAPIA® as it makes users to sit in a correct manner, something I haven´t experienced before on any other chair. But during few weeks my body realized, that it’s for my own benefit and I never went back.
Today, after 10 years of development and improving, several redesigns and 10 000 chairs sold in Europe, THERAPIA® is at the pinnacle of ergonomics and individualized seating solutions receiving recognition from IT workers, design lovers, police dispatching workers alike.
In 2016 we embarked on a new journey – to introduce THERAPIA® to US market with help from my son Lukas.
Our goal is to help our customers live happy lives and provide them with a tool, that will help them stay effective and battle the effects of prolonged sitting.
