Using nano-dynamo technology built into the skids of the chair and efficient OLED lighting, Rochus Jacob's Murakami Chair powers an attached reading lamp with energy generated from its own rocking motion.

During the daylight, the chair stores power in an integrated battery pack for later use. In Jacob's words, “the final result is a rocking chair that enables the user to experience production and consumption of electricity in a gentle and rewarding way.”
