About Us

About the company - DAO

Formid is years of development, hundreds of iterations, experiments, and ideas. Formid is handmade in Canada by a dedicated staff of designers, thinkers, collaborators, and movers. What started as a sketch and a sore back still moves us today; sitting should be liberating and moving can be beautiful.
