Toque-Creating Seats
Rocking-Knit by Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex Will Knit You a Hat

Take a seat on Rocking-Knit and relax, put your feet up, grab the paper and a cup of hot coco and pretty soon the magic will begin to happen. As you rock back and forth, the chair’s gears spring into action and before you know it, you’ll have a winter hat at your disposal.

The novel idea came from design duo Lausanne Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex from the university of ECAL for the ‘low-tech factory’ exposition during Designer’s Saturday in Langenthal, Sweden. Students were briefed to re-imagine the idea of manufacturing and bring the fabrication process back to a slower pace.

The chair was revealed in action at the Ruckstuhl building (a carpet factory) surrounded by spools of thread and more modern pieces of machinery. There’s certainly something beautiful to behold about the stark simplicity and slow pace of this gadget at work in today’s frantic world.
