Sample Chair Pro Trends

Each Chair PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online chair articles, videos and images. Examples:

Accommodated Accessibility Wheelchair designs are updated for more dynamic use Implications - Many wheelchairs are stiff and unsympathetic to the fact that their users are confined to their seat. In the interest of increasing both comfort and mobility, many wheelchair companies have updated their designs to offer greater customization. The ability to modify according to preference empowers disabled people to navigate the world around them with ease and convenience.

Reinvented Rocker The rocking chair has been given a contemporary, out-of-home update Implications - The rocking chair has been modernized for both personal and industrial use. Whether it's through using 3D printed manufacturing methods, or incorporating a sculptural aesthetic, the revamped rocking chair is no longer an old-world domestic staple, but an engaging contemporary design. The reemergence of such a classic piece not only reveals the circular nature of design, but also suggests that a modern aesthetic can be playful in its form.

Diverging from the idea that self care is an excessive practice, this highlights the idea of aesthetic self preservation as a necessity. By breaking down decor to its essence, these interior spaces are also delivering on rising consumer interest in transparency in numerous business and retail sectors.
