How it works

Sitting is more comfortable but it destroys your posture. It is well documented that it leads to numerous health ailments. Standing is healthier for you, but it puts strain on your legs. This causes pain and ankle swelling over time. We combined the best of both worlds with the ideal balance.

135º Sitting concept

Research has proven that a 135 degree sitting position is the best way to sit. Aligning your spine in it's natural form. Unlike conventional sitting that compresses hip joints and displaces spinal discs.

The first thing people ask is, "Do you need back/lumbar support?" No, your upper body is in a standing posture which needs no support.

Perfect Posture

The A-gravity chair promotes a healthy posture by naturally placing your body in its proper form. It was not a coincidence, as the design came about from medical research.

Be light on your feet...

  • Only 30% of your weight falls on your feet.

Easy Integration

A-Gravity Chair easily integrates to your existing desk or stand-desk. We know that you enjoy your space, which is why our goal is only to enhance what you already have. No need to restructure or rethink your desk!

A-Gravity chair is the perfect compliment to your stand desk.

Inception to Fruition

Being serial entrepreneurs, the desk is an integral part of our day. Experiencing the consequences of a sedentary life, we started experimenting with alternatives. Using a stand up approach led to failure within a week. We found ourselves putting a rod with a bicycle seat to create support. This was the first iteration of A-Gravity. Within a few months the first official prototype was born.

Team

Founded by two brothers with over 10 years combined product development. Oscar Ortiz is a computer engineer with experience in programming, designing and marketing. Edgar Ortiz has over 5 years experience in mechanical engineering and logistics. He also crunches down on the numbers and makes sure our suppliers and manufacturers get the job done affordably and efficiently.

Manufacturing

Simple, raw materials allow for a guaranteed successful production run. CNC wood cutting and metal machining will allow consistent quality control and rapid production on a large scale. While the human hand is not eliminated from the process as each workstation will be assembled  and finished with craftsman standards in California.

Plywood 

Will be sourced and then process by CNC cutting and milling which ensures a high level of quality control and speed in production. It is already coated with a finish so there wont be a need for expensive and time consuming clear coating. The edges will be sealed using a eco-friendly finish substrate applied by hand.

Aluminum

We have sourced the best aluminum in the market made of a 6061 alloy. Creating a strong yet light furniture piece. It will be machined in house and will be lathe polished.

Steel

The steel manufacturing has been narrowed down to cutting and welding which will be quality controlled using jigs to create a consistent production run.


Why kickstarter?


To make A-gravity available at a reasonable price, we need volume purchasing and manufacturing. Kickstarter is the perfect platform to accomplish this. We will be able price this amazing product at a relatively cheap cost because we skip the retail and produce in quantity.

The funds will be used to purchase the raw materials and to pay for manufacturing services required (CNC milling, welding, cutting and upholstery). We will also need to purchase equipment that will facilitate aluminum processing and polishing. To make sure your product arrives safe, we are allocating good money to packing material for the desk and chair.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing requires an understanding logistics and quality control. By simplifying our product into 3 simple materials, the variables are reduced dramatically. We have developed supply chain partners over the years for the plywood, 6061 aluminum and steel. Production runs have been tested and well understood as studio furniture as a profession runs in the family with over 35 years of combined experience.

Fulfillment will be a part of completing the project, which we have developed the necessary understanding to accomplish from our last kickstarter and our online business development. We will be outsourcing the shipping to FBA (fullfilled by Amazon).

The only variable would be raw material shortages but, it is resolved by alternative sourcing and if a delay in material would present itself we can communicate with you, the backer.
