Wind-Up Chair Charges Phone

Wind-Up Chair Charges Phone

Relaxing and recharging are combined in this interesting piece of furniture

The Milan Design Week was the venue for a rather bizarre piece of furniture – a chair that lets you charge your phone by winding up a giant clockwork key on the back.


PEGA are the designers behind the idea that allows you to invest a small amount effort before sitting down and enjoy a fully charged smartphone when you stand up. The chair itself has a very modern styling and the clockwork crank adds a vintage element to the experience.
