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.
The Luso Lounger by James Uren is the young designer’s modern reinterpretation of the Chaise Longue Company‘s classic lounger. Re-inventing it to suit the way in which we live today, Uren adds a footstool which helps use the lounger in a number of ways (a day bed, lounger, chair, footstool), while Luso’s unusual asymmetric form helps make better use of space.
James Uren is a young designer, who studied contemporary furniture and product design at Bucks New University and has just graduated with First Class Honours. He’s also a runner up of Business Design Center New Designer of the Year award.
The Q3 system, designed by 7n3 Design, looks like a Rubikâ€™s Cube, but in this instance the challenge isnâ€™t to line up the colors, but to make a comfortable seat. Q3 can easily be transformed from a cube into an armchair with side table (using the hard side) or ottoman (using the soft side).
While we’re still on the subject of Emanuele Magini, let me share another design that caught my eye – the Lazy Football chair. Just like most of Emanuele’s creations, the chair combines two worlds into one: the active game of outdoor football meets the lazier version of watching the sport at home. Inspired by the evolution of the designer’s love of football, Lazy Football is undoubtedly a chair for adults in touch with their inner child, and even though it’s not positioned as kids’ furniture, it’s easy to imagine it in a children’s room. Sold on Garage Design website.
