Hayakawa exhibited a hard maple and MDF prototype of Portrait in Chair at Designtide Tokyo 2012 early this month.

Says Hayakawa, "Adding a new axis to the back-support and seat of a simple straight-line chair obscures the orthogonal direction of the chair."

"Manipulating the axis affects not only the visual but simultaneously frees the body to move and change behaviour with the chair."
