NEWS & RECOGNITION

DreamWave is making people feel better. Good news travels fast.

A luxury massage machine by former Ferrari designer Ken Okuyama

The latest product from DreamWave, a high-end massage machine, delivered in line with CES2019. Ken Okuyama, who worked as a Ferrari designer, was in charge of design. North America is not so familiar with massage chairs, but there is plenty of space to install because of the size of the house. With its high design, it aims to appeal to the wealthy.

A common feature of massage chairs is that both sides are designed to open to the left and right like a car door. For seniors, these chairs sit more deeply than normal chairs, so they can sit up and wake up, making it difficult to get up and out. Because it is a high-end model, the price is “about 1 million yen in Japanese yen” (related party). Pre-order has already started.

Dreamwave M.8 Massage Chair

Given how much machinery and robotics go into massage chairs these days, it’s no surprise that many of them are inspired by cars. The Dreamwave M.8 is a great example. Designed by Pininfarina alum Ken Okuyama—he’s responsible for the look of many a Ferrari—the M.8 not only offers multiple massage modes based on the techniques of a Japanese shiatsu master, it also packs in AI smarts that enable it to automatically adjust to your height and find the appropriate back and glute pressure points. The chair automatically varies speed and intensity to give its kneads, taps, pulses and rolls a more human feel, and heated rollers help improve blood circulation. And if all that robot handling doesn’t chill you out sufficiently, then a mechanized mix of ionized air, aromatherapy, and soothing colors—not to mention music piped in through the headrest’s Bluetooth speakers—should do the trick.

The Best Gear We Found at CES 2019

CES is the world’s biggest show-and-tell. Companies bring their quirkiest and most ambitious projects—good, bad or insane. We may never buy any of it, but we go to Vegas to get hints about the future, as WSJ’s David Pierce discovered while wandering the vast convention halls.
