More About Us


Office swivel chairs

When we develop our office swivel chairs we do it with a design strategy that we call functional design. This affects ergonomics, comfort, choice of materials and, of course, durability and the environment. This has made us what we are today – one of Europe's leading manufacturers of office swivel chairs.

Our Brands

Common Core

The three brands owned by Scandinavian Business Seating share a common core. These three brands are deeply rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition and they all share the same Scandinavian values and a common Scandinavian identity:

The most environmentally sound products in the business

•A balance between good ergonomics and aesthetics

•Human-centred functional design

•The right quality at the right price

The HÅG Movement

HÅG chairs aim to change the concept of sitting. They follow the movement of your body without you even having to think about it and encourage you to move throughout the day. This is what we mean when we talk about balanced sitting that keeps you moving. The HÅG movement is based on our philosophy that the human body is not made for sitting still, but for movement and variation.

Designed for Human Performance

The human body is a miracle and with the right tools, it can achieve wonderful things. All our chairs take into account the human body’s need to move and maintain an upright posture so that you breathe better. Our chairs are tools, crafted to keep you feeling at your best. In other words, they encourage active sitting and increase performance at work.

Vitalising space and relations

We all know that the environments we find ourselves in can affect us and the way we behave. That is why it is so important to create rooms that inspire us and keep us focused.  At RBM, we recognize this and create products that have a positive effect on people.

"When it comes to task chairs, no manufacturer takes the environmental effects of its materials and processes more seriously than Scandinavian Business Seating.

As a company and a manufacturer of high- end office seating, we are acting now. Globally, perhaps the difference we are making today is modest. But our mission - as our products, name and philosophy grow increasingly familiar in the market - will help seed other initiatives and inspire others to change their behaviour."



Our goal is to deliver perfect products. For this reason, we conduct thorough tests throughout our production processes. Our commitment is to ensure your complete satisfaction. Our level of technical expertise, combined with our honesty and sense of responsibility, mean that you can sit comfortably every time you choose a Scandinavian Business Seating chair.

Ergonomy - Movement and variation

Nature did not design the human body to sit still for long hours every day at work stations. We need movement, support and variation to work well.
