Our client asked us to come up with a new design of a care chair that responds to a changing need: more and more elderly grow old at their homes. These people deserve a nice looking chair that evolves with their needs. Provide us a care chair that takes into account the following requirements: a home-like appearance, light(er) in use and space-saving.
In day clinics (growing trend!), the INO also replaces expensive beds.
The INO is at the same time a displacement chair (instead of the stigmatizing wheelchairs and brutaly designed care furniture), a comfort chair and an ergonomic lounger.
