Haptic chair is the result of an extensive process of analyzing, experimenting and enterpretating tactile surfaces in nature.
It has been a project which has been focusing on the haptic processes of the sense of touch, keeping in mind the importance of the haptic/optic importance as well as how we are drawn towards object, wishing to investigate and by the hand, activating the sense of touch, to feel tactile differences of the chair!

Having in mind, the different haptic sensitivities of the body, the chair is designed to stimulate the hands with fine and detailed craftmanship, while the areas touching the back and the seat has a rougher and more tactile character.

The chair is made in oak with upholstery in foam and Furniture bored. The Furniture bored is fastened with a thread in copper for constructive purposes as well as haptic.
