Ergonomics meets design
Furniture should give us a functional use – that is an unwritten law. At the same time, however, it should also contribute to the quality of life within our own four walls, radiating a certain warmth and making the room inviting. Driven by the idea of developing an elegant and futuristic design chair that also does not neglect its practical and ergonomic side, moll has developed the designer swivel chair moll S9:
Curved lines and rounded corners. The moll S9 is anything but a conventional office swivel chair. Because the design separation of the seat and backrest element gives the moll S9 a unique appearance in the office furniture landscape. In addition to the design, great importance was also attached to the ergonomic function of the swivel chair, which is typical of moll: Because thanks to the intelligent adjustment options, the moll S9 can be used for children and adults and adapts ergonomically to its user.
Conventional chairs force you to sit still and in a forced posture. But our muscles need movement. The intelligent technology allows and encourages forward, backward and sideways movements and converts even the slightest shift of weight into movement. The synchronous movement concept allows pelvic rotation to stabilize the spine. This form of dynamic sitting stimulates the musculature, stimulates the metabolism and effectively prevents back pain.
The minor S9 consciously avoids everything that would restrict a natural posture of movement. For example, it has neither an armrest nor lordosis supports. The compact form supports the possibility of adopting the chair in any sitting position.
With an intuitive button below the seat element, the seat can be easily adjusted to the respective body size. The seat height can thus be adjusted from 34 cm to 45 cm in the lower, and 46 cm to 57 cm in the upper seat element position. The seat depth can be adjusted at any time using two recessed grips. The lateral rocker function keeps the pelvis in motion and effectively prevents static sitting. The tilt ranges up to a maximum of 5 degrees in both directions and is differently pronounced depending on the setting to meet the requirements of people of different heights. The rocking backrest follows the body, invites you to lean back and provides support. The backrest counter-pressure can be individually adjusted with just a few turns of the adjusting wheel.
The movably mounted seat surface ensures the correct seat angle. The mobility of the seat is regulated automatically, depending on its position on the seat support. It therefore adapts continuously to all body proportions.

The moll S9 is the reinvention of the swivel chair for work at home. Its design, its materiality and not least its compact construction make the moll S9 a piece of home furniture with technical intelligence. No other swivel chair adapts to different body sizes and seating requirements as extensively as the moll S9.
This is also the view of the expert jury, which awarded the moll S9 the renowned German Design Award 2018.
