Outline

The office chair "ing" was developed under the concept "to release sitting". "ing" is an innovative chair that does not stop the movement of the body even when sitting. Its maximum function is "Gliding Mechanism" which freely swings 360 ° according to the fine movement of the body. Follow forward and backward, left and right or diagonal twists, and the seating surface swings naturally. The gravity mechanism that does not use the spring has a "load-free load like a balance ball", so it makes it easy to move the body, and after moving it has a "swing back like a swing", so shake with confidence I can. In addition, a swinging bearing surface creates a pleasant rhythm, "activating the body and brain".
