emerati designer khalid shafar has conceived a chair design that fosters the action of sitting cross-legged entitled ‘flip’- a position where the lower
legs are folded towards the body, crossing each other at the ankle or calf, with both ankles on the floor, and sometimes with the feet tucked under the knees or thighs.
the design is currently a prototype fabricated from ash wood and upholstered in cotton, celebrating and pushing the ubiquitous activity of sitting.
