This chair for public spaces was designed with portable computer users in mind. When the armrest is flipped it turns into a desktop. Both set‑ups keep an ergonomic body position with the use of rubber bushing, allowing you to change the angle of the seat. This is an example of how one can develop a product whose form and function are universal and timeless through observing and analyzing individuals in contemporary society. The shape of the furniture borrows from the finest designs of the previous decade. The designer uses simple and well‑known technology, which translates into lower production costs. The materials guarantee durability, which is essential for designs for public space. Worth implementing.
