Chairs that bring people together
Designed and developed in collaboration with Amsterdam Metropolitan Area
A conversation with a stranger can have a positive influence on well-being. Research by VOUW shows that people not only do not mind the conversation with a stranger: they even like it, but do not dare to take the initiative quickly. With the Chairwave, VOUW wants to encourage contact between strangers in the public space.
As soon as someone sits down, the seats next to that person unfold. The perfect reason for the next sitting person to start a conversation.
VOUW is constantly researching and applying new technology in design, to make the world a little better. With this project VOUW wants to make people aware of the value of a real conversation and to establish a connection with each other.
