Lean On Me / chair

Lean On Me
Lean On Me

Asian people have a habit of taking a nap after lunch; therefore office clerks used to prostrate themselves on the desk and sleep for a short while. Maintaining this bending position will cause flatulence, and after a long period, the health condition will be impacted. The design involves reversing the back of chair and making it serve as a bench so that people can almost lie down.
