Chairs for the Dysfunctional

Posted on April 26, 2012 by waikit

The society we live in is changing, shouldn’t the interactive side of these daily objects change with us? Perhaps the function of the objects stay, but it is the process of how we interact with them that must change.

Should there be different chairs designed for people with different sitting habits? Do you sit on all four legs or just two? Do you continuously shake your leg? Or do you like to sit with your back facing the public?

This series of chairs illustrates each of these stories. Will these chairs become props that normalize the unwelcomed habits? Or will they act as therapy to “cure” one’s  syndromes?
