DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Meditation Seat Ware

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seat Ware

INSPIRATION:
Review on the history, we rarely see cross legged sitting furniture, but since ancient times, cross legged posture has been retained, so I want to design a seat ware for cross legged sitting, and help people get into meditation realm, also help us to keep our bodys' energy.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a seat with a curved surface shape, people can easily achieve cross legged sitting by it. This seat ware can effectively distribute the force of the buttocks of the human body evenly to the outside of the knee and the thigh. Even if keeping long time this posture, we will not feel tired. The back can feel the support of the caudal vertebrae, increasing the support of the waist. This design is not only a reflection of culture, but also a study of ergonomics.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Everyone will feel a strong sense of experience when sitting it.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2010 in Hangzhou in China and finished in September 2015 in Hangzhou too, and was exhibited in Salone del Mobile in April 2016, and in iF Award Exhibition in Hannover of Germany in January 2016 , and in London design Fair in September 2016, and in Tokyo Design Week in November 2016, and in HK BODW in January 2017.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The center of the product is a three dimensional metal skeleton, wrapped outside with a molded sponge, and the outer surface of which is the leather.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This is a real product, and its dimension is 840*660*290(mm).

TAGS:
Ergonomics, Meditation, Seat, Zen,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We made more than thirty internal metal skeletons,attached the sponge, in order to determine the appropriate model, and also spend a lot of time to make the surface of the seat, finally I completed it with two materials, one is leather and another is bamboo weaving surface.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge of this research is that there is no original shape for reference. So I can not drew an accurate form fitting our body.

NAME:
NANOIN DESIGN

PROFILE:
The word ‘NANOIN’ came from philosophical reflection of micro design. The Chinese word ‘wei’(with the same meaning of micro) appeared earliest in Oracle with the meaning of ‘old people walking slowly with crutch’. That was used to describe elder’s weak image. Modern Chinese explains this word including 3 key meanings: small size, softly and vague. Micro design, using traditional Chinese philosophy to balance the relationship of human, objects and environment. Human changes objects carefully in order to make everything develops correctly and naturally. The extent of that people feel the object depends on people’s mind. Miscellaneous objects constitute the environment and the integral effect influences the sense of human. So we put both object and human to the whole environment to discuss their future for the purpose of getting the best equilibrium point. Treating object gently and changing object carefully is a way to mitigate burden on the environment. Also is what NANOIN always want to say. We hope these small efforts could be eventually aggregated to be a great change of our living home.
