DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Experimental Standing Chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Experimental Standing Chair

INSPIRATION:
We heard a lot about the harmful effects of the sedentary work style to our spine while we spend most of our work time in seats. But sitting causes obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Experimental standing chair with the aim of avoid the harmful effects of the sedentary lifestyle. The furniture allows the user dynamic posture changes and helps the user to work close to standing position. We can work in leaning position, while there is a position close to normal chair we can use to reduce the load on our feet.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Experimental Standing chair works like a regular chair. It has 4 points contacting the floor, and it has an adjustable seat. In order to adjust the height, you have to screw out the threaded steel rod, pull it out, slide up or down the seater, find a matching hole, put the rod in, and tighten it. It has an adjustable footrest also, it can be rotated by foot to achieve the most comfortable angle. The foot rest has two end position, it cannot be over-turned or broken.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
With this furniture i graduated in Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design (MOME), Master's degree in Designer, Hungary, in 2015. The research started in october, 2014 and the final design was born in april, 2015. It was exhibited in the Exhibition of the University among the other Master degree grauduation projects of the year.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Experimental Standing Chair is a wooden furniture, but i used steel parts in the critical junctions to maintain strength and long-term durability. The furniture has ethereal but rigid structure. I wanted it to be static and sturdy, to keep the furniture nature. The chair is made up of geometric elements, so i gave matte black finish for more serious and elegant look.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The furniture outer volume is: 1000mm high at its highest position, 450 mm wide, and 841 mm long. Package dimension: 700mm high, 650mm width, and 1050mm long

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I was looking for the circumstances of effective office working. After reading books about the office work, and research about the harmful effects of our sedentary work style, i decided to design a furniture which allows the user to work less in sitting position. I have made several real size prototypes, tried different surface shapes, read a lot of books about ergonomic sizes of people. After finding the technical parameters and specific dimensions the concept has to suit, the final design development started.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part was also the most enjoyable, finding the materials and design the structure capable of the necessary strength and durability, while carrying the design elements and finished, aesthetic looking.
