An ordinary – or rather far from ordinary – garage in Menlo Park near San Francisco in 1998. Two 25-year-olds, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, develop the first test version of their search engine Google in this garage office. This was the start of a two-man garage company which would become a billion-dollar business. Google has become one of the most successful brands in the world.
And who else was involved from the very early start in one of the history's greatest IT developments? The Aeris Swopper!
Aeris Swopper - an icon
Aeris Swopper is THE classic among active office chairs. Over the past 20 years, it has revolutionised the office world with its unique 3D technology and initiated a paradigm shift in the way people work and live.
But now it is time to make the Aeris Swopper fit for the next generation of founders, thinkers, doers and everyone who wants to stay fit and healthy. With its contemporary and simplified design, the Aeris Swopper is now ready for the new decade. While retaining its unique mobility, of course.
So why are we doing all this?
Too many people still spend too much time sitting still. And that is damaging. This lack of movement quickly robs us of our concentration, energy, creativity and - more above all - our health. Our modern lifestyle diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, back pain and many others are caused by this lack of exercise.
This is the reason why we get up every morning. Our goal is to allow people to have an active and healthy lifestyle through our products. We create movement exactly where you least expect it but need it most of all - while sitting.
Larry and Sergey - a big thank you once again for being part of our journey from the start. The new Aeris Swopper is waiting to be delivered to your door. Just let us know which of our many new Aeris Swopper versions best suits your "new garage".
In this spirit - here's to more brilliant, ground-breaking ideas and to a healthier and more active lifestyle for everyone.
