The ALMA collection of chairs was designed by Willis Mullet. ALMA chairs are designed for dining as well as task chairs. While there is ample lumbar support for upright dining or tasking, the ALMA chair is designed to recline when the occupant adds light pressure to the upper back. As the occupant starts reclining the seat back moves both downward and backward to provide a balanced reclining experience. Concealed springs can be easily adjusted so that the chair back perfectly balances the occupant in any reclined position between 9 and 23 degrees.
ALMA chairs are uniquely different than other reclining chairs in that they do not require a pedestal. Also, unlike most reclining chairs where the seat tilts or moves forward as the back reclines, ALMA chair seats stay stationary throughout the reclining experience.
