Ingenious Rocking Chair Knits A Hat for You As You Sway Back And Forth

0

The Rocking Knit chair was created by Lausanne Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex, students at the ECAL University of Art and Design. At first glance, the chair looks a lot like a porch swing or glider chair. Settle into the comfy seat, and you’ll find that it takes little effort to rock back and forth.

While you become engrossed in your book or phone conversation, something magical is happening above your head. The chair’s to-and-fro motion turns gears in the frame above your head, activating low-tech machinery that draws yarn up from a spool beneath the seat.

As you enjoy a rare moment of relaxation, the Rocking Knit goes to work, knitting a winter hat that soon begins to emerge right above your head!
