Spotted yesterday among the graduate works at part two of the New Designers show in London was a series of interactive children’s chairs. Created by Edinburgh College of Art Product Design graduate Jo-Yun Wang, they play musical tunes when triggered by a child’s movements.
The Tune-Tune Stool is installed with the same type of mechanism as a music box, which plays music when the stool seat revolves. And the castor wheels attached to the Ensemble Chair have mini integrated music boxes – each playing a different, individual note – that produce sound through the movement of the chair.
New Designers: Part 2 runs until July 9 2011.
