Roly Chair / Chair, Furniture

Roly Chair
Roly Chair

When we're in a space, what we have as furniture in fact forms a setting that we see as reference. We subconsciously relate ourselves to it and adjust our behaviors accordingly.

Here the design is a chair that can switch between a high up position as a stool or a low arm chair. The two modes provide different levels of privacy that people perceive by its height and enclosure The user can switch in between by simply flipping the chair by hand and the curve in front will help it complete the rotation.
