Redefining the workspace experience: the journey of our founder.
Back in 2008, our founder, Martin Carpentier, programmed websites and worked long hours in front of a computer. Over the years, he developed carpal tunnel syndrome and back problems from using a traditional desk and chair. This spurred him to embark on a journey to redefine the workspace experience with two considerations in mind: comfort and productivity. Being a father to four young kids at the time and working from home, the idea was to get more productive so he could spend more time with his family and avoid health issues. The ideal chair needed to be comfortable and adjustable to the user’s preferences.
The original and ground breaking design
In 2009, The Emperor 200 was the first original and groundbreaking design that forged the company into what it is today: the world’s leader in the modernized workspace. The bulky wooden structure of the 200 model evolved over the years to a more minimalist steel structure with the Emperor 1510, LX, and now with the latest XT design.
