Most of us learn early on that if something is good for us (think spinach), we may not enjoy it. But when it comes to ergonomics, comfort and health are synonymous.


Designed to move with the body and minimize pressure points, Cinto breaks the number one rule for stacking chairs—it’s comfortable! Ideal for commercial and residential use, Cinto features an innovative backrest that provides recline and automatically adjusting lumbar support, plus a seat pan design that uniquely distributes the sitter’s weight and reduces pressure points.

Responsible Design

Sustainability is the natural outcome of simple, elegant design.
Find out why


Traditional stacking chairs save space, but most lack extended sitting comfort and proper back support. Cinto’s innovative design boasts ergonomic features to dramatically improve the sitting experience over other stackable seating solutions.

Usability studies prove poor back support and insufficient backrest flexibility are associated with many stacking chairs.

CINTO: Floating Backrest
Cinto’s backrest is attached to the chair frame via a flexible belt, allowing the backrest to bend and adjust with the sitter.

TRADITIONAL STACKING CHAIR: Insufficient Lumbar Support
Traditional designs fail to provide sufficient lumbar support necessary for comfortable long-term sitting.

CINTO: Virtual Pivot Point
The flexibility of Cinto’s backrest creates a virtual pivot point that provides automatic and ideal lumbar support for nearly every user.
