Rocking Chair that Knits Winter Hats

Rocking Knit is a chair that fashions its user a beanie as they leisurely rock back and forth, activating gears that put the machine to work as its sitter relaxes. The project is in response to the exhibition’s theme, where students were required to deconstruct the fabrication process of a product to a slower, more considered pace. It was shown as part of ECAL’s Low-Tech Factory exposition in Switzerland. [via]
