The designers wanted to promote good mental and physical health for people working in a modern office environment, so they created a young, sporty office chair. They applied a few design elements from sports shoes to the chair, such as the covering on the chair back, the line of the cushion, and the decorative line of the lumbar support. The goal was to express the vitality and energy of sports in an office environment to reduce the pressure of monotonous work. Moreover, the new lumbar support adjustment function offers more relief of lumbar pressure when a user is seated for a long period.
