First there was a TweetingSeat, now there is another attempt at creating a seating system that keeps you connected. Segment is a modular communication solution in which seats can be connected to one another to create different combinations depending on your needs, and each segment of the seating system has a USB port to keep you connected at all times.
Segment has three main modes (and can even become a sofa):
Chaise mode, which allows for full interaction with laptop/tablet/smartphone;
Seat mode – interaction with another person with laptop/tablet/smartphone;
Social mode – interaction between up to four people.
Fractures have different forms that derive from the material structure and the type and strength of energy that is activated upon it.
This project is an exploration of the material characteristics, in fracture. It presents the wild and unique aesthetics of each material and its interaction with intense energy.
