The project started from the research on ‘Hagwon’ culture which is very intensive private school environment in S. Korea. In ‘Hagwon’, students are having quite monotonous posture for a long time with only notes and hearing during their studying time. In terms of finding ideal ergonomics and comforts, we needed to define a standard size and curve for korean students’ body. After having wide range of experiments and research, we could made a 2 dimensional side curve. Although it has only 2 dimensional side curve, but it has a certain comfort to concentrate on their studying. Also chairs are stackable and reasonably cheap to provide students.
