Sitmatic was created in 1985, as an Italian based furniture manufacturer, specializing in drafting stools, which gave them an early expertise in proper ergonomic design. Still the industry leader in ergonomics, they manufacture all kinds of seating and specialize in the perfect fit, no matter what the users size. By designing and manufacturing its own major components, Sitmatic achieves cohesive design vision as well as engineering integrity. In the seating industry, integration to this extent is rare. Complete inventories are maintained of all wearable parts, so that the chair can be easily serviced for years to come. They also have a lifetime structural warranty, which is no surprise, given the build quality of their products. All products are now manufactured in California.
