Hormongraphy / Lounge Chair for Outdoor


'Hormongraphy' is an outdoor lounge chair used by people with problems of irregular life, overwork, and overuse of electronic gadgets. 'Hormongraphy' is aimed to correct deficiencies of Serotonin, also known as 'Happy Hormone', and maintain sitter’s biorhythm by design elements, such as ‘tactile bumps’ on the backrest and ‘back wraps’ for the upper back. As the function of ‘Hormongraphy’ is based on East Asian medical ideas, the chair is aimed to regenerate the sitter’s biorhythm by using it routinely. By sitting on the 'Hormongraphy', it helps modern people to relieve the fatigue of daily lives.
