RESTLESS CHAIR

This chair looks stiff and sturdy, but it adapts itself to the user. Special handmade rubber joints provide this flexibility. Starting point was an old wooden wobbly chair of which the joints got loose over time. By redesigning the joints it is now flexible in all directions. 

Even after putting a book under one of the legs the chair will adapt and all legs will touch the floor. Special handmade rubber joints provide this flexibility. Starting point was an old wooden wobbly chair of which the joints got loose over time. It was about to collapse... By redesigning the joints the Restless Chairacter is now flexible in all directions. The chair has rigid looks but technical solutions within the joints result in a surprising outcome. A chair for those who can't sit still.

A Restless Chairacter was part of the graduation project at Design Academy Eindhoven and won the 1st prize at D3 Contest imm Cologne 2009.
