Rocking Chair Knits Hat

Rocking Chair Knits Hat
Design

'Rocking Knit' is a new design that turns the motion of the seat into a warm winter hat.

Design students Lausanne Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex have created a chair that actively knits a winter hat as it rocks back and forth.  The gentle motion of the chair activates a series of gears which put the machine to work as the sitter relaxes.

The project is part of a part of an exhibition where students seek to reinterpret the manufacturing process through design, deconstructing it in to a slower more considered pace.  Along with the scarf-knitting clock, these designs should be all you need to help get ready for winter.

Check out the video below for a closer look at how the chair works:
