About

Introducing λ Chair.

We are thrilled to add the λ Chair to our Smart Office category. This is an ultimate chair that supports your lower back, promotes good posture and makes sitting a real joy.

The λ chair is well designed to follow the strictest industry standard. We have passed several tests including the BIFMA one so you can rest assure that the quality is excellent. We even back our chairs with 30-Day Free Trial, something you will never see in a crowdfunding campaign. 

 

Choose your favorite color.  

We will send out a survey to ask for your color choices when the campaign ends.

The advanced art of sitting.

With its sturdy, high customization and breathable fabric, λ Chair brings you a whole new level of ergonomics and comfort to boost your working productivity.

Patented lumbar support.  

This is the feature that we're proud the most. Most of the current office chairs do not provide good support for a day long working that you usually need a cushion. λ chair solves this problem completely with our patented lumbar support feature. Just pull down the handle, the whole back of the chair will come forward to provide the best support not only for your lower back but your whole back.

Timeline.

Why Kickstarter? We always wanted to launch a new product with Kickstarter because the platform help us keeping a complete transparency with our campaign. It also allows us to stay connected with the backers throughout and after the campaign. 

More importantly, Kickstarter is a place where you can rest assured that you are fully protected on and after the campaign.

Why we can offer very affordable price for a premium chair?

You asked? We received this same question when we started to sell the standing SmartDesk at an incredibly good price two years ago. The answer is simple:

  • We have strong distributed teams in New York, California, China, and Vietnam to find the best factories around the world for each and every component.
  • In traditional furniture retail, office furniture is usually marked up 4x by the time it reaches you. We cut all the steps to bring it directly to you. In short, we pass all the savings to you, the customers.

Risks and challenges

This is the third time we launch on Kickstarter (previously under Robotbase account) and the sixth time we launch a crowdfunding campaign so we are confident that we have enough experience to deliver things smoothly in time.

However, there are always risks involved with new products. But we always try to work as hard as we can to minimize those risks with our years of experiences in manufacturing, product sourcing, logistics, and quality control.

1. Inventory risk: We already have the production prototypes (10 blue units). However, We don't know yet the interest level from Kickstarter backers. Throughout the campaign, we'll monitor the number of orders closely and adjust our production as quickly as possible.

2. Supply chain risk: While we're confident that we have everything under control. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.

Disclaimers: This is the third time we run a Kickstarter campaign, the others were campaigns for SmartDesk and Personal Robot. Both of them were really successful indeed.

SmartDesk: We have fulfilled all the pledges for the desk and people love our desks a lot. We have sold thousands of them to customers all over the world. You can read a few of their comments here

Personal Robot: Let's be honest, there is a delay on this project as we were a bit underestimated but we do keep people well informed on every progress of the product.
