K-I-T Chair Design by Pieter Dauwe
K-I-T is an affordable reading chair, designed to order online, and for the customers to assemble.
Belgian Industrial designer Pieter Dauwe presents his latest design: a chair that rethinks the industry in every aspect.
K-I-T or Keep-It-Together Chair is optimised for use during reading. Existing mostly out of MDF panels connected by velcro strips, the panels have some tolerance to move. The fact that the chair is flexible gives the chair a suspension, for comfortable seating.
Reading a newspaper or a magazine can be annoying when customers have to hold their arms up all the time. This chair solves this problem by placing the two middle panels (between the armrest and the backrest) in such a position that everyone finds the right position to read in a comfortable way. The panels are placed under the right angle for every person to rest against them with the elbows, which makes it possible to read for a longer period of time, because it is less tiresome.
The chair comes in a box the size of the frame, and to reduce shipping costs the panels and the cushions are positioned inside the frame. The velcro strips make it very easy for everyone to assemble and reasssemble the chair without difficult manuals or lots of screws.
Pieter Dauwe, designer: “Chairs designed for ordering online or for assembling at home have existed for a long time, but it’s the combination that makes for an interesting and affordable formula. By eliminating some steps in the selling process and shipping straight to the end consumer, the price could be drastically reduced, compared to other premium brands.”
