Enforces your sluggishness

CONFORMIST is an interactive design object: a chair that has a human shaped cutout with the capacity to enforce its users’ sluggishness. The chair pleasantly invites you to join her; she takes your phone away, and then she has power over you by being authoritative, controlling and regulating because you want your phone back. This experience aims to be a speculative scenario in which you are an immobile, lethargic and apathetic dependent on easy, comfortable and smart personal digital technology. This irony, funny, and strange relationship with CONFORMIST reflects an implication of loss of our ownership.
