STRAP / Sitting Device

STRAP
STRAP

STRAP is made out of cotton fabric and a few stitches. A foldable pocket size sitting device made in one piece, that makes sitting on bare
ground comfortable. The inspiration for this project is the Deleuze and Guattari book Nomadology: The War Machine. A life in constant change
and in relay demands a tool that can adapt to the existing situation, just to be transformed for the next one. Since hair can be grown and
shedded just as easily, it makes for a perfect material for such a device. Braided hair, wrapped around your body, puts the limbs in stasis.
Based on the concept of abundant material at hand and the most basic structure to support
