Eco Hack – Eco-friendly Chair pumps itself by walking!


A Korean-born designer has designed what seems like “air bubble” chair that pumps itself when you walk.

I think this is a really great idea for concerts and outdoor events where people have to stand constantly.

For example, it would be great to have this while watching Tiger Woods play in a real PGA Tournament, you’d have a chair for every hole you are at. (or wherever you are at)

Just don’t take the bus with the chair inflated, make sure to deflate the thing first.

Artist and interactive designer, JooYoun Paek takes the cake on that front with her recently revealed Self-Sustainable Chair, a wearable piece of furniture which is a dress where the butt inflates into a chair through pumps in the shoes. Paek hopes the provocative art piece will “transform the humdrum experiences produced by routine walking commutes into an amusing interactive performance.” Featured at this weekend’s Conflux Festival, her quirky and intriguing project suggests that rest and walk can be balanced by re-thinking the function of what we wear.
