Father and son team Yos and Leonard Theosabrata from Indonesia head the Accopuncto label.
Designing a seat that can adjusts to the shape of the users, that was Yos S. Theosabrata’s dream.
His son, Leonard Theosabrata made this dream come true by designing Accupunto’s Ergonic collection.
Its patented Ergonic technology uses an ancient method of acupressure, where each polypropylene capsule works as a needle exerting a relaxing pressure on various points of the body. The straps which bind these capsules give to our seat this surprising comfort.
Leonard Theosabrata was born in Jakarta, July 26, 1977. He graduated from the Product Design Faculty at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA in 2002. Leonard is currently the head of the Jakarta-based LTD. His love for furniture has led him to build Accupunto. He received a Red Dot Design Award in 2003, a Good Design Award Japan in 2005, and the recent Wallpaper Design Award 2009 for his collaboration with Michael Young for Accupunto.
