Young Taiwanese industrial designer Yu-Ying Wu has created an innovative flexible chair called Breathing. The design focuses on the process of sitting on a chair and the interaction between the user and the chair while using it. In designer’s words, “Just like taking a breath, BREATHING is a chair that can elastically transform and vividly provide the full support for people to sit on. When the user sits on the chair, the edges of the chair automatically become the armrest; also, when the user stands up from the chair, the chair returns to the original shape of a cube. The changing of shape is resulted from the weight of the user and the texture of the material, instead of using any mechanism.”
