Inspiration

Styrofoam has the property that deforms accordingly 

when subjected to more than a certain amount of force and pressure.

Concept

Starting with these insights, ‘Tamable Chair’ is a furniture project that is gradually optimized for user’s body shape, interacting sensibly and physically between each other.

Taming Point

The user's sitting position determines the taming point by back, seat, and leg.

Ergonomic Deformation

The shapes of the seat and the backrest become more 

suitable and comfortable for the human body as they are used.

Physical & Sensuous Interaction

Physical marks are intuitively visible and users can feel the changes sensibly in the taming process.

Before & After Taming​​​​​​​

In the early stages of using, the users may feel unfamiliar 

when they sit on the chair, but the more they use it, 

the more chair becomes tamed and optimized.
