A boomtown lost in the depths of the Wild West. The wind blows and raises red earth tornadoes. house shutters close one by one. Everyone joined the nearest shelter. A pistol duel is brewing. In front of the saloon, a grinding noise is heard. An old age without swaying on his rocking chair witnessing the sad spectacle …
Remember this vision of rocking chair. That of the Far West, Lucky Luke and Dalton Ma. The rocking chair includes a floor lamp, this fantastic chair to which one can give a rocking motion, rocking and relaxing the possible, a second youth and a new image: the “Murakami Chair.” With its sleek and ultra-stylish design, this model Murakami finally buries the good old models.
This floor lamprocking chair from Rochus Jacob uses the energy produced by the pendulum swing to power a reading lamp integrated.
With this project, Rochus Jacob intends to take advantage of the energy produced by the human body during our daily activities. Through a miniaturized dynamo system and a storage battery integrated into the structure of the chair, the pendulum will naturally power a lamp consisting of a curved OLED panel shaped lampshade. A simple idea, bright and ecological award-winning addition to the last contest “Designboom green life competition”.
