'hox soft and folding furniture' by asaf yogev design for all competition shortlisted revealed

‘H-chair’

‘hox – soft and folding furniture’ by asaf yogev from israel is one of the 240 shortlisted entries from more than 5100 participants in our recent designboom competition ‘design for all‘ in collaboration with seoul design fair 2010.

designer’s own words: ‘exploring what happens when we sit on something soft, and how it changes slightly with our body, led me to take the change that happens in cushioned upholstery.(…) I wanted to create a different and surprising object when one sits on it. the pieces I developed were influenced by my inability to see an empty chair in a room – chairs that were lacking because no one is sitting in them. all this led me to create an object that looks whole within the space even when no one is sitting on it.’

stay tuned. the entire list of shortlisted entries from the ‘design for all’ competition will be revealed shortly.
