Ru Chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Chair

INSPIRATION:
Nowadays most baby chair is not simple to fit interior and always like a toy, can only be used for a few years time, and will usually be thrown away due to limited house space after baby gets older. It would be meaningful if the childhood memory can be kept with the furniture. As a new mom, inspiration comes from using experience and former bamboo nursery chair, which is ideal dual usage design but the bamboo material can scratch baby's sensitive skin easily. The result of a improved timeless chair design came to the mind.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Ru Chair is design for dual usage, which is not only a baby chair but also an adult stool. The baby can sit in the chair for feeding, and can be flip 90 degrees for adult seat. Ru Chair designed with rounded corner and anti-fallen foot design ensures child's safety, moreover, it turns to be waist-support when the chair converts to adult usage. The soft and flexible sponge gives adult sitting support which is also kid's back cushion. Ru Chair is a simple designed baby chair appears presentable and timeless in any interior.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The baby from 6 months can sit in the chair for feeding, playing or do more interactions with their parents. The circles in front of baby seat keep the baby not boring. The chair can be flipped 90 degrees to adult stool at any time as you need a side chair for the guest or after baby gets older. Without any screw or any complicated structure to convert the usage, just easy flipping with one hand.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
With plenty previous study, observation and small group interview. We can obviously know that a good eating habit is developing from birth. Put them in their own chair is important to let them associated eating and the chair. Not only when eating, babies from 3 months like to sit up to look around and explore more new things from the environment. A baby chair with secure structure, fun, modern style is what Ru Chair going to represent.
