The project

The BiB chair is a seating device that helps the user to get up using their own muscle strength and regain their balance once standing. The partnership has designed a simple mechanism that assists movement, using metal and laminated wood which is a new material and one not so widely used in the furniture industry and they want to discover the properties offered by this material. The partnership will use traditional Finnish know how combined with the latest technologies.
