Recline

2015

A chair designed to react to a person sitting down by lowering in the seat and raising to provide support for the head.

The seat, constructed from small slats of plywood connected with elastic thread, provides support when someone sits and returns to its original form when not being sat on.

This transformation arises from tension applied to the plywood by the elastic stretched tight to just the right point.
