Breathing Chair / Tofu Chair by Yu-Ying Wu

Posted in Furniture, Sculpture, Technology, Texture by RADDblog on October 27, 2009


Taipei-based industrial designer Yu-Ying Wu’s Breathing Chair resembles a block of aerated tofu. Closer inspection reveals that the triangular voids vary in size, and their placement has been carefully calculated; the large triangles at the top-front-center “give” the most, creating a chair-like shape when compressed by a human body.

Wu’s chair, inspired by plant cells, took home a Red Dot Design Award in the home furniture design concept category earlier this year.

Not much in the way of information on production of further pictures – we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
