Sprung Chair Design by Jason Klenner
This investigation challenges the way that people view, participate with and value everyday objects through creating interactions that can be described as surprising, memorable, enjoyable, light-hearted and even exhilarating when compared with mass market equivalents.
Sprung, in addition, challenges the conventions associated with a seat’s appearance, structure and use by integrating two materials in the seat pan that are not generally combined in the field of furniture design – elastic cord with a flat plastic sheet.
When sat in Sprung provides unexpected and enjoyable sensations for both the user and observers. The 2-dimesional plastic sheet seat flexes into a 3-dimensional springy form, offering a dynamic ongoing bouncing motion.
Designed as a limited edition object, Sprung incorporates 65 metres of hand-stitched elastic shock cord. Currently Computer Numeric Control (CNC) stitching processes are being explored as an automated alternative to the limited edition original for commercialisation.
