The increasing demand for a more fulfilling time at home has recently led to a growing interest in interior design.
In particular, an increasing number of companies are adopting "telecommuting," or working from home, and many people are rethinking their chairs as they spend more time sitting at home.
The "Style Wellness Chair" is not only well-designed, but also has the "Style" brand's concept of "reducing the burden on the lower back and guiding the user to an ideal posture. The "Style" brand has developed this new chair based on the same features that have been incorporated into its products up to now.
We hope to contribute to the health and quality of life of many people by introducing the "Style Wellness Chair" into their daily lives, which has solid evidence that it reduces fatigue even after long hours of sitting, is comfortable as a chair, and has a beautiful design unique to the Style brand. We hope to contribute to the health and quality of life of as many people as possible.

What is "ergo-practor technology"?
"ergo-practor technology" is a term coined by combining ergonomics and chiropractor.
The unique structure developed based on ergonomics, which supports people's safety, security, comfort, and health, is combined with the methods of chiropractors, who pursue the root causes of body distortion, correct the pelvis and other parts of the body, and adjust the overall balance of the body. It supports the "S-shape posture," an ideal posture care in which the spine forms an S-shape curve by "standing," "supporting," and "dispersing. It realizes full-fledged posture care.
