Evaluation

While focusing on “a mechanism that naturally promotes a proper sitting posture,” which was the main concept when it was first launched, this office chair is also adapted to the transformation of working environments. With the rise of remote working, co-working spaces and home offices need chairs that create a relaxed environment, while offering outstanding performance and comfort. Whereas conventional office chairs stick out like a sore thumb in the home, this product boasts a lightweight profile and a range of color options, creating an outstanding design that blends in well with the space around it. Incorporating elements of both working and living into office spaces provides workers with the drive that will enable them to pursue a diverse array of ways of working in greater comfort.
