Users can meditate while sitting cross-legged on the sofa.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Zazen is a refreshing space rather than a chair. We need an area in the public places such as office and library to let us get out of the stress for a while. Zazen can company you until calming down and refresh yourself via providing an area for meditation. It also can be an ordinary chair with turning over for study and work.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Turn the small-opening side up to make it an ordinary chair for study and work. On the other hand, it turns to a sofa with a large-opening side up so that creates a comfortable space for reading and meditation. When users feel stressed with current study or work, come and meditate for a while, to gain a refreshed mind.
