Rookie High translates the advantages of the Rookie office chair to standing table height. Pleasantly comfortable, it adapts quickly and easily to each user with the aid of minimal elements and functions. The ability to alternate between sitting and standing postures at office desks and in meetings ensures optimum ergonomics – and when it is the user that changes position, rather than the table top, the action is spontaneous and dynamic. The seat, backrest and steel foot ring are vertically adjustable, and the latter serves as a practical support when sitting or standing. This makes Rookie High an excellent choice for any environment in which people wish to engage at eye level, whether they are seated or not – for example in offices and meeting rooms or at touch-down workstations.
