Ideal Chair

Hello! We are Risa and Yuta, and this is our ideal chair! Our chair focuses on 3 main points, numerous customization options, comfort and has an alarm system that wakes you up in case you fall asleep.

We are Kosuke and Remi.
Our chair has multi-function which can make relaxing nature environment.
