The Orient|Reorient seat was designed in response to the UNSW Michael Crouch Innovation Centre's seating design competition.
I am interested in the way individuals interact with design objects and the ways that participation prompts responses and conversation. I believe that the adaptation of a seat from one scenario to another is well suited to the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre and that in this process interaction and collaboration are encouraged. The seat I have designed functions as both a seat and a stool, fluidly transitioning between the two with a simple change of orientation.
The Orient|Reorient chair uses the process of interaction and play to encourage conversation and interaction, in the moment of constructed transiting between stool and chair when it is turned 180°, interest should spike and prompt conversation. A characteristic not afforded to traditional seating scenarios.
