Okamura understands that people are shaped differently. To accommodate different body types, we developed a unique and easily adjustable seat curve that supports a wide range of back sizes.

The back curve adjustment helps Sylphy achieve personalized seating comfort for the whole office.



Your body shape is unique. When it comes to finding an office chair that's high performance and high comfort, it's personal. That's why Okamura developed the Sylphy chair with an exclusive simple-to-use Body Curve Adjustment. After all, it's your chair, shouldn't it fit you perfectly?

Easy to Personalize

With the Body Curve Adjustment, it takes just seconds to customize the fit of the backrest. Pushing down the levers on the sides of the backrest broadens the curve for a more related fit, ideal for those with a larger stature. Pulling the levers up forms a narrower curve for a firmer fit, ideal for a smaller build.

Designed to Flex

Sylphy’s backrest frame was designed to bend slightly with the motion of your body. This is achieved with a unique Double-structured frame, joined together by minimal touchpoints. The supple inner frame, which comes in direct contact with your back, supports the frame provides structural durability and strength, to give you a more comfortable, natural posture.

Designed to Curve

The form of the chair is designed to wrap around your body to create a comfortable seating experience with just the right amount of curve. Okamura’s Multi-density Cushion provides softer support at the front of the seat, reducing pressure on the thights for improved back firmly supports the hips for stability and improved posture.

Designed to Flow

The synchro-tilt Mechanism moves the backrest and seat in sync for increased comfort and support. With both standard reclining and forward tilt functions you can choose from free-flow recline, or locked positions to accommodate various needs and work styles. The Forward-tilt Function allows the seat to tilt forward 10 degrees. so Sylphy can support you even through long periods of intensive computer work, by keeping the pelvis in a neutralized position.

Seat depth

Adjust the seat depth witin a range of 50mm (2”) by operating the lever on the left-hand side of the seat.

3D adjustable armrest

The arms of the chair can be adjusted in three dimensions. By pressing the button under the arm pad, the arm height can be adjusted in a range of 100mm (4”). The depth and angle of arm pads can be adjusted within a range of 50mm (2”), at an angle of up to 20 degree respectively.

Side adjusts

The dial under the seat on the right side adjusts the reclining tension.

Recline & lock

The synchro-tilt mechanism moves the backrest and seat simultaneously. A dial under the seat allows the backrest be set to move freely or be locked in one of the four positions:
- Forward-tilt (10 degrees)
- Upright
- Backward-recline position
- Deepest backward-recline position (23 degree)

Benefits of forward-tilt function
