Just a small change to the back makes all the difference.

Okamura understands that people are shaped differently. This has led Okamura to develop a unique and easily adjustable seat curve to support the back, making chairs with this feature suitable for any back size. Sylphy achieves personalized seating comfort.

Key Features and Specifications


Back curve adjustment
  • The key to comfort is how the curve of the seat back fits. Sylphy can be adjusted to suit any body type.
    A new development: the ”back curve adjustment”. Our goal in developing this adjustment was to enhance the feeling of a perfect fit between the back and the back support.
    By pulling down the levers on both sides of the seat back, the curve becomes gentler to fit those with a large build. Pulling the levers up creates a narrow curve to fit those of smaller statue.
Hovering frame
  • While firmly keeping the correct S-shape of a user’s spine, Hovering Frame lets the user freely stretch and put their weight fully on.
3-D curve
  • A curve that surrounds the hips provides a comfortable seating experience.
Multi-density cushion
  • The chair incorporates polyurethane with a consolidation of three different densities. A soft cushion that does not place pressure on the thighs is at the front edge, while hard cushion at the back fully supports the hips.
Quick and easy adjustment through synchronizing mechanism
  • The dial under the seat on the right can be used to adjust the level of reclining. This seat improves over past dial designs by requiring a smaller number of rotations to move between the minimum and maximum settings.
Locking and unlocking the reclining level
  • The dial under the seat on the left can be used to lock and unlock the seat's reclining level. The back support and seat recline together, offering the standard upright and back-tilting positions. In addition, the chair offers a forward-tilting position that is convenient for using a PC or writing. The design achieves a wide range of reclining, with positions adjustable up to 23° backward and 10° forward from the upright position. The chair features four different reclining levels.

Environmental Features

  • Recycled materials are used in aluminum and resin parts. These materials make up about 30% of the product weight.
  • With future recyclability firmly in mind during the design stage, we use homogeneous materials wherever possible. After use, our products can be collected and disassembled into homogeneous materials.
  • Okamura uses environmentally friendly materials and modular designed parts. Additionally, major resin parts are labeled for easier recycling and disposal.
  • Designed for disassembly and recycling

    Sylphy is designed with a mind for easy disassembly and recycling so materials can be thoroughly separated into same groups.
