Interactive Chair—Front or Back / Interactive Chair—Front or Back

Interactive Chair—Front or Back
Interactive Chair—Front or Back

People may feel uneasy to sit so close to a stranger. This design is meant to solve this embarrassment by providing an interactive sitting choice for the user. The concept of the ‘Front or back’ is based on the mechanic of the theater chair. The seat turns up while not in use. People can choose to turn the chair either frontward or backward depending on their own free will or the relationship with the others. The styling design is based on the simple curve and arc to form a streamline shape. With the combination of black and white color the image of simple beauty of urban style was completed.
