Anaïs Rochat – Brise
Brise is a lounge chair made of wood and mesh allowing for better air circulation.
Nowadays, heat waves are becoming more and more frequent. The first ones to suffer are the elderly as it is harder for them to regulate their body heat. Since they spend most of their days resting, I decided to rework their chair with a focus on cooling. By replacing the foam and the traditional layers with perforated fabric, the seat reduces the contact of the material with the skin. This way, air can circulate and guarantee better cooling.
