Joong Han Lee, founder of Studio Homunculus, created a chair that requires symbiosis between the user and the object itself. The user must balance with their legs to sit down and the chair is obsolete without the user’s presence. As the user sits down, the weight put on the seat counterbalances directly onto their legs. This mutual dependency allows the user to feel empathy for the chair in a most tangible, physical way.
Oh hey man yeah no you showed me last time I was over but it’s totally fine I’ll just sit on the floor.
No, no it’s great it’s super cool I just prefer sitting on the floor sometimes you know?
Haha, totally. No I promise next time I’m over I’ll definitely sit on it for longer it’s heaps better than a normal chair I agree.
Yeah I know man, I understand what symbiosis means, I get it. Good for you, absolutely, money well spent.
