The chairs have an elastic seat and back covered with various plastic knobs that can conform to the shape of one’s body while sitting or lying down.

The open space between the pins offers air circulation and the pins, the accupressure.

The aesthetic quality of the chair is a product of Western functionality and Asian philosophy of the body.
