From Wearable Exoskeleton Chairs to Origami-Inspired Seating

 - Oct 27, 2018
The October 2018 furniture trends infuse artistic design elements with functional purposes from a variety of different angles. The list of examples this month highlights sustainable and versatile elements, bringing function and art to both public and domestic spaces.

The LEX seating solution by Astride Bionix is a wearable seat that has elevated portable elements as it can pull into a chair whenever needed. It is constructed from space-grade aluminum materials to have supportive sensibilities. It is strapped onto the lower half of the wearer and can be folded and unfolded whenever it needs to be in use.

Another example is the Exo chair designed by Svilen Gamolov, which boasts design elements inspired by traditional Japanese origami practices. It has an unconventional structure and rethinks new perspectives without disrupting the furniture's function.
