r+e by sara rophie from mexico
designer's own words:
The R + E is a relax and entertainment center for teenagers between the ages of 13 through 20.
On the back side, it has three springs which facilitate movement and versatility. These allow the teenager to rest comfortably in many different positions. The springs are also a fun element that adds a youthful touch. They can be covered with different materials such as plastic or fabric to add support and a more personal look.
It has two speakers integrated by the headrest to enable music listening directly from an mp3 player, for example, an IPod. It can be easily inserted in the cradle, which is located at the lower right side of the armrest. It also contains a standard size beverage holder on the lower left side.
The dimensions of the R+E are based on anthropometric measurements.
The material with which it is made is polyurethane and the covering is a 100% polyester fabric. It can be made in several different colors and patterns. The bottom of the R+E has a PVC covering to allow its use outdoors. Also on the bottom is a compartment for the batteries that will be used to power up the speakers.
