The long-selling office chair series “Wizard”, which has been on sale since 2008, will be renewed for the third time. It will evolve from a mechanism that suits the work style of sitting in a fixed seat for a long time to one that is in line with the fluid work style of workers such as ABW (Activity Based Working). ABW is a work style in which workers decide for themselves when and where to do the work they need to do most efficiently.
The “Wizard 4” to be released this time has a reaction force characteristic that makes it easy to balance at any angle, an auto-fit synchronous locking that automatically adjusts according to the weight of the person sitting, and an upper that enhances the fit by allowing only the upper part of the backrest to move flexibly. Equipped with a tilt mechanism and two functions. In addition, it is equipped with lumbar support that can be adjusted according to the shape of the spine and reduces the burden. The unique function that combines support and fit comfortably supports the movement of the body while seated.
In addition, it is a sustainable office chair that focuses on consideration for the environment, such as using recycled materials for each part and making it possible to replace the back and seat cushions that easily get dirty.
■Scheduled to be released: Early December 2022
■Manufacturer’s suggested retail price (excluding consumption tax): From 68,200 yen

Features of “Wizard 4”
1. Dual motion mechanism that fits the movement of the body
“Wizard4” is equipped with two mechanisms that support diversifying work postures. The smooth fit when rocking, the reaction force characteristics that make it easy to balance at any angle, and the auto-fit synchronous rocking that automatically adjusts according to the weight of the person sitting supports a comfortable working posture. In addition, the upper tilt mechanism allows only the upper part of the backrest to move flexibly, following even the slightest movements of the body and overwhelmingly enhancing the fit.

2. Adoption of recycled materials and sustainable design that can be used for a long time
We are particular about consideration for the environment, such as adopting recycled materials for the materials of each part. By making it possible to replace the back and seat cushions, which tend to get dirty easily, it can be used longer than conventional products. [Image 3
3. Lumbar support that fits to the shape of the spine and reduces the burden Equipped as standard with “lumbar support” that allows you to adjust the shape of the backrest surface according to individual differences. By sliding the lever horizontally, it is possible to switch between two stages, depending on whether the spine is in a nearly flat “I” shape or a highly curved “S” shape.
