Throughout the history of my country, people are used to sit on the floor and less on the chair. Even though the seats and chairs are commonly used everywhere these days, there are still a lot of people who sit criss cross on the chair. my aim was to design a chair to fulfill the need and habits of the people of my country.
This is a seat with a curved surface shape, people can easily achieve cross legged sitting by it. This seat ware can effectively distribute the force of the buttocks of the human body evenly to the outside of the knee and the thigh. Even if keeping long time this posture, we will not feel tired. The back can feel the support of the caudal vertebrae, increasing the support of the waist. This design is not only a reflection of culture, but also a study of ergonomics.
We made more than ten model ，attached the sponge, in order to determine the appropriate model, and also spend a lot of time to make the surface of the seat, finally I completed it with two materials, one is leather and another is wood.
