Final Frame: The Silent Farter and Constant Shaker

Haha, had to share these two chair concepts from designer Alice Wong's collection, aptly titled CHAIRS FOR THE DYSFUNCTIONAL. Our favourites are the two above that utilize a little bit of tech to keep things interesting while seated, exposing our dysfunctional behaviours, explained by Alice herself as thus:

Silent Farter
Those with excess gas in their abdomen can find it difficult to hold it in sometimes, even at important times such as formal dinner gatherings or meetings. Quietly letting the gas out may be the solution, but although the sound may be muted, the scent is still present. It can often cause misunderstanding and unnecessary embarrassment for the innocent others.This chair announces who the gas is from by amplifying the silent fart exhausted.

Constant Shaker
Researchers believe these unconscious muscle movements may be caused by a chemical produced in our brain to trigger additional calories to be burnt. This chair calculates the amount of calories burnt when one fidgets or shakes their leg when sitting down.
