Bassoon or Cello, Viola or Double Bass each individual instrument requires a comfortable, ergonomic playing position that is suited to the musicians needs. The Tempo chair was designed by Jim Condos, over ten years ago with a distinctive goal in mind. “I wanted to create one chair that would meet so many needs for so many musicians.”
Sought after by the world’s finest orchestras, theatres, learning institutions and military bands the Tempo chair performs throughout Australia, Europe, Asia and America. With credentials such as the Sydney Opera House and the Victorian Arts Centre, tempo is the world’s choice for ergonomic musician seating.
“shuoda” the innovative Australian designed Musicians Chair from Tecno Furniture. An ergonomic chair designed with the professional musician in mind. Musicians throughout Australia are benefiting by using the Tempo Musicians chair, designed by Jim Condos manufactured by Tecno Furniture.
“It was challenging and important to produce one chair to meet so many needs”.
In 1992 the need for an ergonomic height adjustable chair appropriate to the playing of orchestral instruments, and also visually acceptable for the 20 year refurbishment of the Sydney Opera House, was seen at the start of this project as an opportunity to address the very serious postural/health problems now known to be commonly suffered by musicians.
1992年， 考虑到当今很多音乐家在演奏时被困扰的姿势和健康问题， 交响乐团对符合人体工程学的可调节高度的演奏座椅有着迫切的需求，同时在视觉上也要搭配悉尼歌剧院20年内不断翻修的效果，大家感觉到了开始研究这个项目的契机。
Also to launch a new multi-application Australian made product as an attractive and correct solution. The result is a fully adjustable ergonomic chair, suiting a wide variety of instruments and seating positions. This is achieved by the seat height adjustments and back support movements, and is also stackable due to the absence of a centrally located pedestal leg.
Orchestral players suffer frequently from spinal and upper limb discomfort which may interfere with playing or even disrupt professional careers. In one survey of a U.K. orchestra (Gordon & Asgburner, 1993), 86% of the musicians who responded believed that poor seating was the cause of backache, neck and shoulder pain.
交响乐团演员频繁受到脊柱和上肢不舒服的困扰，这些都可能影响他们的演奏，甚至毁掉他们的职业生涯。一份来自英国皇家交响乐团的调查报告显示（Gordon & Asgburner，1993年），86%的音乐演奏人员回应认为恶劣的座位是造成腰背、颈肩疼痛的主要原因。
The design brief was handed over to Jim Condos of Tecno Furniture. Discussions on the postural and stage management factors began with Simon Hamilton (Human resources ABC Sydney) and Ed Fardell (Technical Director Sydney Opera House).

This led to more detailed research material obtained from the members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra (through discussion, questionnaire and prototype assessment). After 2 years of research and development the TEMPO Musicians chair met the requirements of the players and stage technicians. “The effort put into the design work and consultation with the orchestra members has certainly paid off and the whole exercise has been an unqualified success.” (Ed Fardell S.O.H.)
