lazy chair

Furniture designers Freshwest asked us to help them create something a bit different: a chair that would collapse when someone approached. So that's exactly what we did.

 

Lazy Chair is an experimental concept piece inspired by the simple children's pop-up toys we all know. Its collapse is triggered by a built-in motion sensor, so as soon as anyone comes within a few feet of the chair, it falls to the floor and then playfully rises up again.

 

Lazy Chair has appeared at London Design Week, Salone del Mobile 2009 in Milan and Moooi Gallery, Holland.
