APOL' known as (A Piece of Lifestyle) is a Singapore-based company selling ergonomic gaming/office chairs. They aim to offer chairs that are comfortable and of top quality but affordable at the same time. Chairs in APOL are designed to cater to different sitting postures and build.
The founder of APOL, Jason Lin, suffered from regular back pain and neck aching. He knew it was the time to fix this long-term misery of his. Having known each other since secondary school, Jason Lin, Toh Leong Chin and another associate jumped into the business together in 2018. After much research and testing of about 20 different prototypes, they managed to come up with the final product which they believed are built to suit everyone, from CBD office workers with lower back issues to students burning the midnight oil to prepare for exams. In 2018, the company launched the Classic series but the founders decided to remove it as they believed that the Classic series did not cater to people of different sizes. Hence, they decided to launch their Signature series named Sphinx, Kraken and Behemoth to better serve the different needs of people in November 2019.
