UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I wanted to create a sitting furniture that would be comfortable and suitable for different people and body shapes but yet stay elegant with clean modern lines. So I took the challenge of creating a sitting furniture that would be adjustable to fit any individual who seats on it, and remain original and decorative all at the same time.

CHALLENGE:
To create seating furniture that allows a variety of sitting positions to fit the user comfort in height and size. One of the challenges I had to face was to find a material that would be soft enough to be comfortable and yet strong enough to stand firm as it stands as one unit and sturdy enough to hold body weight.
