Submitted by Vasil Velchev, this project is called Galaktika. It is an armchair that is designed especially for airport VIP lounges or public spaces where people need to spend more time and their staying has to be comfortable. You can read Vasil’s explanation below.
This armchair has double function, it can be used either for sitting or resting. Switching between the positions is easy because of the clicking mechanism that is placed below the side handles. It is connected to the middle swinging axis and allows lock and release of the internal wooden core in upper and lower position. The rotating angle can be changed with15 degrees. Depending on your needs you can choose between one of the two positions. The upper bar (the top bent metal part) is rotatable and can be used to attach electronic devices.
