Gardening Chair : Mobility Gardening Aid for Boomers by Han S. Hong

This Gardening Chair has been designed to support the action and movements that take place during home gardening. Squatting, getting up and down, moving short distances or leaning to a desired direction are the most repeated and difficult movements. Especially for the older people, Gardening Chair helps maintaining the user’s garden easier and more enjoyable by making those movements easy. This design is simple as it looks.

The core steel-spring works as height adjusting mechanism while providing suspension to the body. The spring can accommodate the height difference up to 4 inches which gives the height range from 14” to 18”, the upper seating portion also provides grips for stability and balance. Its seat and hand grips are shaped to contours to the user’s body for optimal comfort. The lower portion has a rounded base to support rocking and leaning motions and the empty space below the spring can be used as temporary storage. Three spring loaded spherical wheels give the design a large range of motions and maneuverability. When the user sits on the chair, the spring loaded wheels retract into the base allowing the user to rock safely. After the user is finished using Garden Chair as a stool, it can easily be rolled around on pathways.

  1. Why do you make it sound like Oxo is producing this chair when it's only in the design concept stage. Very misleading. I would buy it in a heartbeat but it seems it's no where to be found for sale. Very disappointing!

  2. Please, please, please. Is this chair available ANYWHERE or is it just a designer’s pipe dream? How can a product that seems so amazing be left on the drawing board?

  3. Thank you all for leaving kind comments and showing your interest on my past concept work.
    I was approached by a few people regarding realizing this project, though, it seem to be a very costly development that I can't afford. Regarding the OXO logo, I've contacted Tuvie admin since OXO reached to me to take this down, but they woun't take this post down or mask the logo for some reason. I hope to get back on this project in my future but for now, I am an industrial designer with short history and reputation… and the life keep me too busy. Please, understand that my work here was to show the potential of my concept and the branding practice was perfect for the brand, but it was not associated or featured by OXO by any mean.

    • Hi Han, we haven't received any email from you regarding the OXO logo. Now that you're here, we'll remove the logo from this project, hopefully after that, this post can stay.
