Gimbal Jr. multi-use chair, the newest addition to the Gimbal family, is a statement piece with a unique and memorable experience built-in. Based in user empathy, it welcomes the human form through comfort and movement.
Hightower’s original Gimbal Rocker Lounge was created with a gimbal mechanism allowing for a very slight rocking motion to help users expel just enough energy for a longer (and calmer) duration of sit. It's been said that this subtle movement can be an effective solution for "fidgeters," those who experience a lack of focus, restlessness, and even memory retention issues while seated for extended periods.

Fast forward to 2021, when the contract furniture industry experienced significant shifts in user demand. As a result of a global pandemic, users increasingly embraced more of a residential vibe for their seating options influenced by months of working from home. 2022 seemed the perfect time for the Hightower Studio team to answer the market with a highly flexible lounge that not only embraced the human form, but also one with multiple movement styles.
