Product Q&A: Zody by Haworth

April 21, 2009

NAME
Zody

BIRTHPLACE
I was born at Haworth Inc. in Holland, MI.

PARENTS
I consider myself fortunate to have parental guidance and influence from two cultures: North American (Haworth), and German (ITO Design).

SIBLINGS
My younger sibling—Zody Guest—and I are
quite a pair; we fully complement each other.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
I’m healthy, environmentally conscience, user-friendly, and performance-driven … and I love to travel.

GENETIC MAKEUP
The two most recyclable materials on earth—steel and aluminum—make up the majority of my weight, simplifying recycling.

FAVORITE COLORS
Like the old adage, you can never have too many shoes or hand bags, I also have many options to help complete a look. I am timeless and can fit in anywhere; I don’t want to appear trendy. I can be electrifying in poppy; calming in fern; comforting in gray flannel; elegant in black; and poised in hyacinth. My base shines in metallics or is stately in black.

ASPIRATIONS OR DREAMS
Like any beauty pageant contestant, I wish for world peace. On a more grounded level, I simply want people to be comfortable at work. No person is perfectly symmetrical and my revolutionary asymmetrical lumbar support system can help maximize comfort and support like no one else.

ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT
I am 51 percent recycled content, 98 percent recyclable, PVC-free, chrome-free, and CFC-free. Additionally, I’ve achieved Cradle to Cradle Gold and GREENGUARD certifications.

WHAT MAKES YOU SPECIAL?
I’m the first of my kind to be endorsed by the American Physical Therapy Association. As a product derived from extensive research on ergonomics, I proudly wear that designation.
