Why Ekornes?

Ekornes introduced the first Stressless recliner in 1971, as the first recliner designed to meet your body’s need for movement

and support when seated. The characteristic TV-recliner was a revolution in comfort and functionality, and soon became an

international success.

Offering patented features you won’t find on other recliners, from the glide system that follows your slightest movements, to the

Plus™ system for correct neck and lumbar support in every position, Stressless® is known as the ultimate recliner.

     

                                                         

Inspired engineering, trend forecasting and industry experience are the secret to creating luxurious furniture people are proud

to own. As the “Innovators of Comfort,” Stressless are the masters of the comfort needs of the human body and continue to

develop the most intuitive and beautiful comfort technology.

Furniture should be many things: comfortable, beautiful, functional – and also intelligent. Creating furniture that understands

the human body’s unique needs became their mission. Through 80 years of experience and devotion, they became masters of

this science – constantly striving to create furniture that exceeds expectations of comfort and utility.

Nothing cultivates the optimal seating environment quite like reliable support. Their distinctive Plus™ system – a functional

skeleton of springs – interprets your body’s movements as you change positions to provide increased lumbar reinforcement. Lie

back into your recliner and feel as your spine slides down the chair and continues to be completely supported. You also sense

the unique headrest feature continue to lift your head to provide the most optimal body curvature for relaxation. A simple

adjustment releases the headrest to a comfortable, flat position ideal for napping. Now, you can maintain the optimal tilt of the

neck to make the most of reading, conversing or sleeping – naturally and effortlessly.

Unrestricted movement is the key to true comfort. The Stressless® Glide system reads your body’s weight and shape to adjust

making reclining natural and adaptive – not conforming to any preset recline positions like most recliners. It is equally as

important to be able to move in and out of your chair. With our unique swivel base, 360 degree rotation is possible, allowing for

a full range of movement. Experience how a simple push of you foot will send you back into your perfect recline position and

how turning in your chair happens effortlessly. We understand relaxation, so we made movement intuitive.

Your body’s interaction with a chair is vital to optimal seating experience. You should be able to sit deep into a chair, not on top

of it. The Comfort-Zones™ technology lets you do just that. This foam is molded directly over the steel frame with perforated air

pockets that allow you to sink entirely into the seat – creating a more soothing experience. A second layer of foam is fashioned

above that to form the most comfortable and ventilated seat possible. Together, these features make Stressless recliners

unmatched in comfort and adaptability.

Stressless recliners are certainly not the only pieces of this remarkable furniture that can read your body’s movements. For

example, Stressless sofas are equipped with the Ergo Adapt® feature, which allows the furniture to adapt to your seating

position. Lean back into the long seat or lie across the couch and feel how this system controls the tilt in the seat to conform to

your body’s most relaxed posture.

Sitting in a piece of Stressless furniture is such a soothing experience, it may be hard to pinpoint exactly which feature is

providing natural comfort. Be it the unique system of springs conforming to the curve of your back, the effortless movement you

are afforded in every direction or the inventive foam that cradles your body, it is clear that our complete comfort system was

designed with you in mind.

Stressless and Sustainability

At Ekornes, the efforts they make every day aren’t done because they simplify a process, or because they cut a cost. They are

done because it is in the best interest of the people they care for: families, friends, fellow Norwegians and Ekornes customers.

They reuse their materials for practical purposes to cut back on the need for additional resources – resources that could be put

to better use. Instead of tossing scraps in landfills, they recycle them to meet their needs. Take for example the gorgeous

European beech used for Stressless chair bases. The excess wood chips are collected and burned to produce the heat used in

our facilities, cutting back on energy needs and protecting the forests surrounding them. Or the scrap leathers stretched for

sofas and chairs collected and sold to companies to create smaller products so nothing goes to waste.

Complex processes are designed by their engineers to ensure the safety of their employees as well as their land. They use

intensive processes, such as close-loop steel degreasing to build metal bases, which allows them to avoid harmful emissions into

the air and the fjords. They implement new practices and processes to protect the health of their employees and the cleanliness

of their water.

Green materials are sought out and purchased and water-based paints and lacquers are sourced. Only the highest quality

materials are used. Their goal is to build a product with a minimal ecological footprint, a product that spans decades. Their daily

efforts are what make Ekornes products quality products. They give you furniture that lasts, so you too can do your part for the

earth.
