Ergonomics have become very important on today’s design forefront. With most Americans being overweight and immobile, our country’s health costs are rising. But customizable designs and ergonomic solutions are becoming more readily available for users to take charge of their personal health, like this ‘bOne’ chair.
The ‘bOne’ chair was created by JDF Raum and Kunst and was awarded the “Good Design 2011 Award” by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. The concept is simple. The chair is designed around the concept of an actual bone’s microstructure– the shell being somewhat porous like a human bone.
Within those pores go the “cells” which are individual cylindrical upholstered pieces whose composition in the chair is entirely up to the user to determine, thus creating the best fit for the user.
The chair comes in various colors and combinations with a selection of 10 in both the cushions and the chair frame.
