Chair 2.0

Daniel Lara

“Chair 2.0 / Sitting 1.9” is a design research project about assessing sitting culture in the dawn of a fully interconnected world, with the hopes of finding new possibilities away from the ubiquitous desktop model.

The research has two anchors, ACTIVE SITTING (where the brain is the whole body) and PASSIVE SITTING (where the brain is incased within the skull) . These poles push against each other to create a thinking space for the paradox of a world saturated with media that demands mind-hyperactivity and a chair to sit down.
