The German Design Award is the premium award of the German Design Council. With its worldwide spectrum and international appeal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the design scene across all industries. Back-active sitting with ROVO SURF, the range of motion and the extraordinary movement dynamics convinced the jury, as also the design with the striking base.

SURF is a completely new development that ROVO created with the designer Henner Jahns. Characteristic features are the saddle seat and the two ERGO BALANCE movement elements for 3-D sitting. SURF activates and invigorates like hardly any other office chair. You sit firmly in the saddle and transfer every movement directly to the stool, which absorbs it and returns it dynamically.

The effective hygiene system is what counts if you want to be safe from viruses and microorganisms such as bacteria at the workplace or in places where people meet. This is not only true in times of COVID-19.

With the ROVO Protection hygiene system, we now offer an optional, permanently active surface protection against bacteria, germs, moulds and viruses for our office chairs - with a 5-year guarantee.

In recognition of its entrepreneurial performance in the field of ergonomics, ROVO was one of the first companies to be awarded the Ergonomics Innovation Prize by the IGR Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie e.V. on 3 December.
