Aging Chair

Hackaton 3 days project

• How to to capture the human ageing process in furniture ?

It follows physical human decay within a life time. The choice for the chair was made because it is an object that is of great importance in all generations, and accompanies you throughout all periods of human life. Second of all, a chair is an object that is related to the body, in which the ageing process is prominently shown.

The human ageing process is expressed by imitating the wrinkling of skin. The latex skin of the chair will wrinkle little by little over time, after the chair has been used. While sitting, the user activates the ageing process, and the more he will use the chair, the more the ageing will show. The wrinkling is executed by a thread system, slowly pulling multiple points of the latex
