Sumo Review: Urban lounge gear is big in japan

This super-sized pillow by Sumo is the ultimate solution for all your relaxing needs. We’ve come up with 10 ways to use it, but some people say we lack imagination! It’s a crash mat, lounge chair, loveseat or floor pillow to name a few, but the possibilities really do go on. Sumo Beanbags are made from space age rip-proof nylon and come filled with top quality Sumo Beads. Omni is 4.5′ x 5.5′ and it only weighs 18 lbs!

Anyway, it is not really a bean bag, but that is the closest thing I could compare it to. Normally a bean bag sort of collapses when you sit on it, the Sumo seems to retain its shape once weight is applied. The website says it is filled with polystyrene balls. Somehow they behave differently than a traditional bean bag. Should you buy it? Feel free to stop by our coworking space and give them a spin. The Sumo guys might be willing to let us do a raffle at the next Startup Happy Hour so maybe you could win one there?

Masha and Nesrin tried them out (see pictures below) and both agreed they were comfy. Anyway check them out – and thanks Sumo for our omnis.
