Our modern society is largely sedentary. We spend our days sitting, at home and at work. This causes all sorts of ailments, from back pain and hernias, to osteoporosis and weak abdominal muscles.
Sedentary Laboratory by Dorota Gazy is a vision of the future: objects tailored for bodies deformed by our current inaction. A cane maintains balance for weakened legs, a chair supports our bent backs, a table with integrated handles to pull ourself out of the chair, an oxygen mask feeds brains slowed by lack of movement and a suit is sewn with a hunched back and trouser legs shaped into a constant sitting position. You have been warned!
Dorota Gazy graduated cum laude from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2017. As a designer, she is fascinated by human behaviour in daily life on a physical, mental and virtual level. Looking for patterns and moments where we take things for granted in order to design concepts that raise questions and trigger action.
