Worldwide Appeal

Haworth’s Design Studio and ITO Design collaborated to blend the best of European and North American inventiveness within a fully ergonomic task chair that will always be in style. More than three million Zody chairs are in use globally today, a testament to the team’s focus on creating a chair that would appeal to and fit users from around the world. The light-scale aesthetic and options for knit and upholstery in a variety of colors mean Zody can take on any look—and work in any environment.


Advanced Ergonomics

Zody features a patented Pelvic and Asymmetrical Lumbar (PAL) back system that allows users to set their own comfort throughout the day. The pelvic support helps to maintain the spine’s natural curvature, while the lumbar pad offers independent fine-tuning for support on either side of the lower back. This unique system—plus a host of ergonomic adjustments, the flexible frame, and the knit or mesh back—serves to enhance comfort and well-being.

Exceptional Sustainability

GREENGUARD Gold and BIFMA level™ 3 certified, Zody is made from 42 percent recycled content, and the optional knit back material is created with no cutting for zero waste. At the end of its useful life, Zody is easily disassembled and 93 percent recyclable. Through the Take Back program, Zody can be returned to Haworth, where we will disassemble the chair and recycle each component.


Zody Knit Inspiration


Haworth Digital Knits offer a unique back option, bringing a look of inviting warmth to the classic Zody task chair. Choose from five knit colors in a textured horizontal knit pattern created to complement Zody’s proven ergonomic performance. When paired with a variety of seat upholstery, the Zody knit back makes people feel comfortable in any environment—from conference rooms to workstations.
