Johnson Nest / Heated foot massager

Discipline: Product

Johnson Nest is a multifunctional foot massager that rethinks the product category by fitting seamlessly into the home environment. An innovative solution on the soft, flexible cover not only keeps dust out of the footwells and helps Nest blend in with other furnishings while in storage mode, it also serves as a blanket to keep warm during the use mode. The graphical control panel at the top of the unit provides intuitive settings to meet the preferences of each individual. Our consumer insight research discovered most foot massagers focus exclusively on the features. Nest, more as a piece of furniture, fits beautifully into the users' home and life.
