Chair based on principles of body conscious design. Inspired by Galen Cranz and Peter Opsvik.

My statement:

It’s time we started questioning how we sit. Should chairs continue to be mostly uncomfortable status symbols or should we start listening to our bodies? A new type of sitting, based on body conscious design is part of what it takes to deal with of the greatest health issues of your time, back pains. Could a chair be an attractive status symbol even if it’s good for the body? Must a chair where you can sit well be made out of plastic? With swedish wood and wool and a healthy disrespect for the chairs standard measurements, I try to step towards a changed attitude. My first contribution: Foxy.

Laminated and solid ash, wool, oil with white pigment.
