London designer Ben Alun-Jones has designed a new chair which explores our relationship with light and space. When alone, the chair merges into the background becoming almost invisible as it cloaks itself in its environment. However when approached, the chair wakes, becoming transparent, revealing hidden depths and creating an almost infinite space beneath. As the sitter comes closer to the chair, the chair’s heart rate increases reminding us that even though it wants to escape, it is firmly and almost painfully stuck in front of us. The Affinity Chair is made from acrylic, mirror film, LED, ultrasonic sensor, custom electronics and codes. Check out the pictures.
