In the realm of active seating, Italian industrial designer Giorgio Gurioli designed this experimental Bikechair:

3D printed in ABS, the chair provides one leg while yours are meant to take up the slack.

This begs the question: How does the chair stay standing when unused?

The answer:

It's not intended for production, of course. The Bikechair was created as an exercise (promotion?) in conjunction with Delta Wasp, a manufacturer of industrial 3D printers. If the yoga-ball-as-chair thing took off, this is how a 3D printing powerhouse would attempt to capitalize on it.

If you have a project from last year that you’re proud of then take a few minutes to send it in to the 2022 Core77 Design Awards. We have 18 categories of practice, and for this year we have a special Sustainability Prize for any projects that have a beneficial environmental impact. Check out for details and schedules.
