Over the past several weeks, professional experts and seasoned remote employees have equipped us with various tips on how to adjust to working from home. Do you wear comfy pants while working or not? Are pets welcomed to Zoom meetings or should they stay off camera? Everyone has their preferences but one thing is for certain: having a comfortable chair that supports your body is key.

One New Zealand-based sustainable furniture brand just recently introduced the Noho Move, a chair that is extremely flexible and designed to function with your body’s movements. It is made from nine pounds of post-consumer plastic waste, including discarded fishing nets and old carpet that would otherwise end up in a landfill.

The sustainably crafted chair has a patented seat design that enables it to easily flex in any direction in correspondence with the sitter’s movements. That includes moving forward or backwards, making it more comfortable for you to lean, stretch or sit back in a relaxed position. It doesn’t have to be relegated to the desk, either; it works well as a dining or occasional chair, too.

The chair ships in a lightweight L-shaped box with the seat detached from the legs and easily snaps together in a minute without additional tools.

The Noho Move is currently $375 and comes in two colors: Cloud (white) and Ironsand (black). If you prefer a shade outside of the standard offerings, the company is also slated to add a collection of interchangeable toppers made from sustainably sourced New Zealand Wool. In addition to Cloud and Ironsand, the toppers will be available in Earth (medium brown), Pacific (periwinkle) and Sunset (a rich orange).
