A CHAISE LOUNGE

As I was given Hoberman's sphere as the object of inspiration, i have understood the making and mechanism of it and explored its scissor mechanism deeper. After trying and testing types of scissor mechanisms, material studies and posture studies  by making models and prototypes, I have designed a Portable and compact chaise lounge for all age groups and multiple contexts. It can be compacted and parked even in a very small area .
