David Kahl is a furniture designer, mindfulness practitioner, and the founder and CEO of Fully. In 2002, inspired by a Norwegian task chair that completely changed how he felt at work, he left a successful but unfulfilling career on Wall Street to build a socially conscious business around active sitting and healthy workspaces. Fast forward 17 years, and Fully is now a Portland-based B Corp that designs its own innovative, movement-inspired furniture that fosters a connection between the body and the mind.
In this interview David describes his journey to become one of the leading proponents and purveyors of high quality ergonomic furniture/equipment. Functional design is his passion. How and why that is comes out clearly in this conversation.
