The Alcat Mission
We maintain that the Alcat Chair does exactly that!
What Alcat Discovered
The needs of professionals apply to all sustained sitting situations!
Our designers traveled around the country experiencing first-hand the chairs being used. Through research and listening to user’s needs, the Alcat Chair was born, to the benefit of those who endure prolonged sitting.
We are thrilled to introduce our first design, the fully adjustable, folding Alcat Orchestra Chair. This chair could not have been designed without the contribution of professional musicians, and directly addressing their needs.
“The adjustments are simple and exact. The sitting surface is wonderfully solid yet provides just the necessary cushion for long hours of stressful performance. My spine and shoulders feel in perfect alignment while sitting in the ALCAT Chair and thus enable me to focus only on my performance. Finally, this is a chair that works for hours and hours and takes the stress off of the spine, shoulders and entire body. I am certain that the ALCAT Chair will establish itself as “the” chair for professional musicians; in addition, I feel certain that anyone who must spend long hours sitting would benefit greatly from this wonderful chair.”
