Breathing Chair Conforms to Your Every Curve
November 10th, 2012
There’s nothing worse than wanting to sit down and relax, and the chair you sit in is hard as a rock and hurts your back and butt. Sitting is supposed to be comfortable. I’m a big fan of comfy chairs. This concept design could be the comfiest chair ever.
Designed by Yu-Ying Wu, the Breathing Chair is constructed of high-density foam, made from environmentally-friendly materials. When not in use, the chair is a big cube with rounded corners, but when you sit on it, the chair conforms to your body.
By layering thin sheets of of foam and putting triangular holes in them, the chair quickly changes form, and springs back to its original shape when you stand up.
The Breathing Chair sure looks comfy to me, but it’s only a design prototype at this point. Hopefully, a furniture company will pick up the idea at some point and produce these. I’d like to see a couch version too.
