Evaluation

The first impression on this product was that this does not look foldable at first sight. Many other foldable office chairs look somewhat cheap and often make us feel a sense of déjà vu. This can be because many foldable chairs are designed based on the structures of already existing foldable chairs. However, the way to fold this chair has originality with no feeling of déjà vu. In addition, we were very impressed with the idea to make this chair self-stand in a fine balance. We found a new perspective of office furniture in this chair.
