Mandarin Chair / Interactive furniture

Mandarin Chair
Mandarin Chair

The design of this product targets husbands and wives who often spend less time with each other.
The integration of a treadmill and a charging mechanism in furniture enables couples to exercise together, which can help them spend time together. In addition, the design can promote a couple’s physical and mental health.
Power charging is an additional feature. The seat cushions can be changed according to one’s mood and sitting posture to promote interactive behavior.
The concept of the external design came from mandarin ducks, which symbolize the harmony between husband and wife.
