Swing Ao Stool

Most conventional chairs are designed based on the idea that sitting is a static state, even though the human body is designed to move. Swing Ao has a tension structure that allows the seat to move freely in conjunction with the movement of the sitter's pelvis. This promotes a feeling of floating and the movement of the pelvis, spine, and surrounding muscles, activating the body's functions just like playing on a small swing. Additionally, it can be used as a stationary stool with an 8-degree angled seat surface to maintain a healthy posture with an elongated spine.

Born on 28 April 1966 in Kyoto City and spent childhood time in Kurashiki City of Okayama Prefecture. Studied urban design at Kyoto University ,wrote a treatise on urban image formation. Particularly influenced by "The City of the Images", Kevin A. Lynch and "Notes on the Synthesis of Form", Christopher Alexander at that time. Began working for the design consulting department of the interior design and construction company in Tokyo for 5 years. Changed jobs to the advertising company Hakuhodo in 1995, and worked for the spatial design department that plans, designs, and produces various corporate branding facilities. In 2007, established Hakuhodo Experience Design, which specialized in "spatial experience design" and have been promoting various businesses with the theme of experience design that brings good relationships between corporates and the users. Established Consentable as private studio in 2014, after which I began to work on the theme of digital life furniture.


Our vision is to innovate the daily lives of modern intellectuals using various devices to be simple by Japanese sensibility. We convey two meanings in this coined word of Consentable. One is Able to be connected to Concent which means outlet in Japan, and the other is Able to be agreed. With this concept at the core, we will be designing and producing various types of digital life furniture with Japanese craftsmanship.
