SWITCHAIR / chair

SWITCHAIR
SWITCHAIR

Intuition is the foundation of every act, this product communicates with the intuition of users, so that users will be guided naturally to trigger a series of user experiences.
It’s a familiar move when you sit down and to turn on the switch, there is a connection between the two acts, this SWITCHAIR links the intuition with the real-life user scenario, to bring people different experiences.
We combined the image of enlarged switch and the chair surface, hinting the users to press down the switch by their body. After sitting down (press down the switch), SWITCHAIR transforms from a chair on the street into a little street lamp.
