a simple milking stool
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Recently, studies have shown that ergonomic seating comfort is achieved through the connection between movements and changes in body position. In response to this, a simple ale-bench offers your body the ability to sit in a way that is comfortable to you. The centerpiece of the chair is comprised of a flexible directional back made of felt. It is designed in a way that allows for varying positions and is therefore very adaptable. The adjustable backrest supports and warms the lower back, providing greater support. To manufacture this chair, the sustainable materials of timber and felt are used in combination with modern colours and forms. To achieve stability, a round central section is glued and laminated with two identically constructed chair legs. The front and back leg are each fixed at another angle to the seating surface. The inspiration for the design was manly found by experimentation and beauty of natural forms.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The folding technique is simple and intuitional. You pick the front side edge of the felt and push it backwards. The rearmost part of the felt is static for your back support. Then you can form the back of núno as you like wish and that is comfortable to you.
