TAMABLE CHAIR
Styrofoam chair
Designed by Donghwan
with Fountain
Inspiration​​​​​​​
Styrofoam has the property that deforms accordingly 
when subjected to more than a certain amount of force and pressure.
Concept
Starting with these insights, ‘Tamable Chair’ is a furniture project 
that is gradually optimized for user’s body shape, 
interacting sensibly and physically between each other.
Physical taming study
In this process, an overall research was conducted 
on the size and shape of patterns with choosing type of materials 
optimized to allow chair to be dramatically influenced and transformed when person sits on a chair.
Pattern specification
Material : EPS(Expandable Polystyrene)
Height : 27mm
Angle : 70’
Distance of Point : 25mm
Manufacturing
Tamable Chair was manufactured by processing EPS(Expandable Polystyrene)
with CNC Equipment for detailed implementation of the patterns.

with Fountain
Taming point
The user's sitting position determines the taming point by back, seat, and leg.
Ergonomic deformation
The shapes of the seat and the backrest become more 
suitable and comfortable for the human body as they are used.
Physical & Sensuous Interaction
Physical marks are intuitively visible and users can feel the changes sensibly in the taming process.
Before & After Taming​​​​​​​
In the early stages of using, the users may feel unfamiliar 
when they sit on the chair, but the more they use it, 
the more chair becomes tamed and optimized.
