Danish designer Anders Huus asked me to share his Living Chair 1 with my readers. With pleasure!
Anders refers to it as LC1, but I believe that is a bit unfair toward the Real LC1 from Le Corbusier.
About the Living Chair 1
It is a chair you can’t sit in! It is created by Danish industrial designer Anders Huus and is an experiment to combining furniture design with robotics. It is brought to life by a few simple means: It reacts to light, time and life around itself. The chair rotates quite slowly around its own axis in 24 hours. Simultaneously it opens itself more as light around it becomes brighter and just like a flower it closes itself when the day is at its end. When a person approaches the chair it stops rotating, unfolds itself and greets the person by wagging its entire body. So it is Anders’aim to bring life into furniture, which certainly is not a bad thought.

On a next level I would love to have an iChair that comes with my slippers and my daily paper when I tweet and hawks: “happy to cu boss!” 🙂
Anders, I believe we need a video here! Do you have it?
