THIS PROJECT INSPIRED FROM AN INVESTIGATION STORY

截屏2020-02-20下午8.52.55

In this project, I design a chair that can stand automatically and wait for its owner. It expresses my focus on solitary young people.
This a description of normal operation process: Every morning, before the owner comes to work, he/ she can set the time of returning home by adjusting the slider and then lie it down. The chair can stand up by itself through its inner machine according to timer. When the owner comes back, if the chair has not stood up, he/she can feel a happiness of coming home early. If the chair has stood up, he/she can feel that they are being waited.
