 A Rocking Chair That Knits You a Beanie

Here’s a great low-tech antidote to the arrival of winter:

“Shown in the Ruckstuhl building as part of ECAL‘s ‘low-tech factory’ exposition during designers’ Saturday in Langenthal, Switzerland is ‘rocking knit’ – a design that makes the transition to the winter season a little less onerous. Students of University of Art and Design Lausanne (ECAL), Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex created a chair that will fashion its user a beanie as they leisurely rock back and forth, activating gears that put the machine to work as its sitter relaxes.”

Check out the details of the design and watch it in action.
