aeris numo – always in motion
The aeris numo object chair combines timeless design with a novel, unusual movement mechanism. Thanks to this, the design chair follows the natural movements forwards and backwards of the persons sitting on it and thus ensures good rhythmic movement. On the numo you don’t just sit comfortably, you also sit in motion, in the office, in meetings, conferences, and at home at the dining table. The sled frame version is also suitable for outdoor use. Moreover, the five colour and three frame variants allow individual design options. A surprisingly versatile and moving design chair that is simply fun.
