The CBS Story
Colebrook Bosson Saunders has been drawing on the varied and complementary skills of its founders Martyn Colebrook, Peter Bosson and Brenda Saunders since its inception in 1990.
Their blend of architecture, product design and furniture design created unique solutions that facilitate interaction between technology and furniture in the workplace. This distinctive approach redefined workplace ergonomics, and still influences how people sit and work with computers today.
When we first started there wasn’t anyone quite like us… we helped promote the concept of ergonomics in the workplace.

“We Like To Be First”
Colebrook Bosson Saunders is driven by their desire to create the new and to be the first in everything they do.
This is reflected in industry firsts, from two of their proudest early accomplishments — designing and developing the World’s first monitor arm, Gemini, and the World’s first flat-screen monitor arm, Wishbone — to Ollin, the world’s first dynamic monitor arm that supports weights from 0 to 9kg.
Human centered design is at the heart of everything they do
It is an approach that has translated into award winning design. Their products have been widely recognised by national and international industry experts for their outstanding design and quality over the years:
Mission & Core Values of CBS
The core of CBS’s design approach is to understand how the person interacts with technology so their products can create harmony and balance between the two. They believe healthy ergonomics encourages movement through the correct balance between the person, their technology and the working environment; enhancing wellness and productivity.
This means establishing new methods, always improving on what has come before, and creating new solutions to an increasingly diverse range of ergonomic challenges. They push for new ideas and new processes with the ultimate goal of enhancing user experience.
They’re passionate about solving ergonomic challenges. And also dedicated to creating fun and exciting environments to work in. Their creative processes don’t start and end with a drawing. It flourishes and extends from the initial pencil-sketch-of-an idea through to a sustainable manufacturing process.
The connection between people and technology isn’t the only one they value. From colleagues to members of their worldwide network of manufacturers, dealers and distributors, the focus is on open communication. As a result of nurturing these relationships, their products have been installed in some of the highest profile international design projects in the world.
New technology doesn’t necessarily mean improvements. What it does mean is getting people working comfortably with the new technology…
