Created by hippie industrial designer Kota Nezu of Znug Design, this is furniture-turned-safety gear. The name for Mamoris comes from the Japanese words for "protect" (mamoru) and "chair" (isu), and the resulting portmanteau should give you a pretty clear idea of the function of this product, and its brilliant originality. Mamoris is Japanese design at its best: simple but useful.
An attractive helmet has been integrated into the back and bottom of a regular chair.

Stylish and genuinely sturdy, the Mamoris offers you head and neck protection, plus back support for your seat too.
