Research & Precedents
The inspiration for Anti-Social-Media Chair came from LC4 by Le Corbusier.
Anti-Social-Media Chair prioritizes ergonomics but also aesthetics as LC4 creates visually pleasing and functional piece that perfectly fits in to modern interior design.
To be specific with the ergonomics, it is focused on mainly resting (smoking & spacing out).
General ergonomics of a lounge chair is focused mainly for the resting, but Anti-Social-Media Chair is focusing not only resting but also smoking and spacing out.
Seating angle of Anti-Social-Media Chair is bit different about 10-15 degree higher. This is because if there is no footstool.
If there was footstool it could form more lying down position because the footstool prevents the leg and knee of the human body from being sheared by the opposite side of the leg and upper body when lying down.
Also, It is designed that the angle of the backrest is less inclined than other lounge chair, and there is no part to lean the calf, and the lower part of the chair is inclined so that people can not only rest but also get up easily.
For the manipulation method, slotting and laminating was used.
