John, Sam, Alexis and Tim lead a team of designers, engineers and production specialists based at our facility and office in Santa Barbara, CA. It’s been five years since John and Sam initially discussed the idea of making a portable chair that was easy to set up—with no compromises to comfort or craftsmanship. Together, we harnessed our combined 20+ years of experience in developing, designing and delivering custom engineered products to accomplish this feat.
John Stump has been an engineer most of his life, involved with successful idea fabrication, product design and product launches of various consumer electronics, camera accessories, medical devices, fitness and sporting equipment, and pet grooming products. He is the co-author and co-inventor of 35 utility design U.S. patents, and applications.

With our collective talents, we’ve worked hard to bring GO CHAIR to market—a chair that is revolutionary, looks great, and is functional and durable. We counted on the support and feedback of the Indiegogo community to help us bring the first set of GO CHAIRs to the world, successfully raising over $1,500,000 with our crowd-funding campaign.
We would like to thank our team members, friends, and everyone who has helped throughout our journey. Your feedback, support, and positive encouragement have been incredibly helpful.
Thanks so much for all your support and we hope to see GO CHAIR accompany all your adventures, here and around the world.
Where will you go with GO CHAIR?
