Heikki Herranen Klaimber Assistive Chair
Klaimber Assistive Chair is Silver Design Award winner in 2020 - 2021 Differently Abled and Seniors' Assistance Design Award Category.
Klaimber Assistive Chair

Klaimber, a person lifting device, is designed to be piece of furniture at home, fusing Scandinavian design with a patented lifting mechanism cleverly hidden in the chair's construct. By its design, Klaimber also works as a regular chair: it becomes an assistive device only when needed, not taking extra space at home or looking like a utilitarian product, which was the design objective.
