The chair, which outwardly resembles a block of healthy organic tofu, is made of high-density foam plastic and though it looks white, it’s really green: the foam is 100 percent environmentally-friendly and can be recycled when the time comes.
Once the sitter stands up, the foam cells quickly spring back to their original shapes and the chair as a whole becomes an appealingly textured block once again. Wu, who suffers from chronic knee problems, designed the chair with the needs of the disabled in mind. When sat upon, the chair gradually assumes a form-fitting state and it rebounds slowly when the sitter’s weight is lifted in the process of standing up.
