Salli saddle chair was first conceptuailized by Veli-Jussi Jalkanen in 1990. His inspiration came from his own experience of back pain that seemed to worsen when sitting on an office chair. Notably, his pain reduced when riding his horse. Convinced that there must be something about saddle sitting that was helping his back, Veli worked with skilled craftsman to develop the first ever Salli Saddle Chair. The Salli classic was unveiled at the at Geneva Invention Expo in 1990 and since then the company has steadily gone from strength to strength and now sells Salli stools throughout the world.
The Split Seat
The unique split seat design has been developed to improve circulation around the lower body and is suited for both male and female users. The sitting position increases weight bearing through the legs, which makes it much easier to move the stool with minimal leg effort. This advanced manoeuvrability makes it ideal for professionals who need to move around when they are sitting, such as dentists, therapists, hairdressers, artists, assembly workers, office workers etc.
The Principles of Saddle Sitting
Saddl e sitting looks radically different from standard office chair sitting but the principle behind it is actually very simple. The saddle-shape of Salli saddle chairs tilt the pelvis forwards which in turn facilitates a more upright sitting posture. For individuals who have always sat on a conventional chair with a backrest, the idea of not having a back support can seem like a radical change. However, the reality is that once people have sat on the stools for 4 weeks this type of sitting becomes the norm. To help make sure the stool is right for you, we offer all customers a no hassle 2 week trial – for more information on this please contact us.
The Range Explained
Salli have over 10 different stools for a range of different working environments and budgets. However, 95% of customers will select their chair from 4 different options called the Twin, Multiadjuster, Swing and Swing Fit. The first thing to note is that all the stools have the same shaped seat top, gas stem and base. The Twin is the entrance level stool and has a single lever that allows the stool to go up and down. The Multiadjuster has an additional forward and backwards tilting function and an adjustable split seat. The Swing and Swing Fit are the new stools in the range. Both stools incorporate a spring in the top of the seat allowing the seat top to literally move slightly in every direction that you transfer your body weight in. The only difference between the Swing Fit and Swing is that you can adjust the split seat width and angle on the Swing Fit but not on the Swing.
