Outline

"ALBROAD 23NP" is a lobby chair whose design is ideal for public areas such as airports and train stations. This chair is a relax posture type in a lineup designed to handle facilities getting ready for the opening of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 as well airports that are upgrading to handle 24 hour a day flights. The seat back is an integral skin mold design with the durability and maintenance features required for public space seating. A simple design look and suitable cushioning are ensured by a custom spring insert device. Material firmness is set to give a soft touch sensation and the round form means no pressure on the thighs for a comfortable seated feeling.
