Nano Chair by Lucas Maassen

While featuring the Molecular Chair by Antonio Pio Saracino, I had to think of the Nano Chair Dutch designer Lucas Maassen designed some time ago.

This chair is not visible with your naked eye, only with a SEM microscope. The Chair is build with a Focused Ion Beam and is 5 micron, and made from platinum.

The Proof of the Cake is in the Chair

Cakes for Design Museum's 20th birthday

I found this photo of the Cakes for Design Museum’s 20th birthday in auralab’s Flickr: Photostream. Now I need to know which chair this is.

Living Chair 1: It listens, senses, rolls and folds, but you can’t sit in it!


Danish designer Anders Huus asked me to share his Living Chair 1 with my readers. With pleasure!

Preliminary observation
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.

About Anders Huus
Born in 1976. Worked several years with marketing and product development in the furniture industry before the studies at Designskolen Kolding. Master of Arts in Industrial Design June, 2008. Established his own design studio in September 2008.

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?
