An everyday use chair focusing on movement, variation and control of and for the body. Inspired by the posture in horseback riding and textile constructions from architecture a chair was created focusing on flexibility for the user.
The ability to move creates a variety of sitting positions and the user is in charge of the body. The form is a result of function, material and ergonomics; which has been a big part of the design process.
The project has it’s starting-point in a theoretical analyze where I’m investigating and questioning the standard which often is used in developing chairs.
