Blooming / Chair


Because people will lean on the back in the chair when sitting on it,we design a flower on it. The mechanism will be pushed and the flower will bloom when the user leans on the back in the chair. This effect is like that the user gives a flower to the people around to have the interaction with them.
The chair is in the streamline shape of egg that can offer the users a sense of security. The cushion of the chair is covered with nice feel moccasin to increase the level of comfort.
When users sit on the chair and lean on the back in the chair,and then the petals on the back will bloom layer upon layer; when users leave, the petals will close.
