Christian Sjöström‘s kinetic Camou is made to move and accommodates a range of sitting positions.
Details: With a sinuous steel tube structure and a flexible mesh 3D-textile, Camou is designed in a way that “forces” the user to move. A wide back rest provides steady support for a more relaxed posture.

“An everyday use chair focusing on movement and variation for the body. Inspired by the posture in horseback riding and textile constructions from architecture a chair was created focusing on flexibility for the user. The ability to move creates a variety of sitting positions and the user is in charge of the body. The form is a result of function, material and ergonomics; which has been a big part of the design process. The result has an organic shape which creates new alternative ways of how to sit in the everyday life. The steel tube and the transparent 3D-textile creates interesting visual effects, the chair melts into the environment at the same time looking as a sculptural object.
Focus has been on creating a chair which collaborates and follows the users movements. The chair is designed in such a way that the user is ‘forced’ to move, through the rocking function, but at the same time is in control and can change posture after need and situation. The posture from horseback riding is ergonomic for the body, taking the burden off the back and muscles. The wide back rest gives a steady support for a more relaxed posture.”
