Breaking Out of Normal: Designing Living Habits from Adults’ and Children’s Perspectives

We are combining everyday tooth brushing with technology and entertainment to create a more playful, fun experience.

Making things a little easier and creating a new pocket of time for communication for parents, while using fun to motivate children and spark their interest in brushing—this was the driving motivation behind development.

point 0 marunouchi is a membership-based coworking space created with the aim of realizing the office of the future. Currently, 17 companies are participating in the project.

Demonstration testing of the project, which offers various types of spaces (open spaces, conference rooms, nap booths and distraction-free work booths), is now in progress.

At point 0, Lion is breaking down the ideas of competition and boundaries between companies, with the participating companies striving as a united team, each contributing their own technologies to offer new ways of working and concepts for the office of the future.

Aiming to realize healthy minds and bodies for all working people, through this project, we will continue to create new services and products.
