Eastern and Western cultures differ considerably in our resting habits. Traditionally, Eastern culture can be seen as floor-based, sitting and sleeping on the floor. On the other hand, Western culture can be seen as the opposite, sitting on chairs and sleeping on beds. “Wa” by Ato design studio is a clever convergence of these two distinct cultural concepts that adapts to the user’s preferential resting position.

The simplistic design can be divided into 3 elements: a pillow for lying down, a floor seat with a back for lounging, or a classic chair for sitting upright. However minimalistic in form, this unique multi-functionality blurs cultural lines and encourages user interaction, strengthening the bond between human and object. Such functionality allows to save a lot of space and it’s an ideal item for modern nomads who love moving and don’t want too much furniture and things to carry.
