Dorota Gazy 为懒散的生活创造的衣服和家具
Dorota Gazy creates clothing and furniture for a lazy lifestyle


荷兰艾恩德霍芬设计学院的研究生Dorota Gazy为那些因久坐不动而身材变形的人设计了一系列概念家具和服装。

Gazy 希望她的“久坐实验室”项目通过强大的视觉冲击力让人们直接了解长时间坐着的影响。

Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Dorota Gazy has created a range of conceptual furniture and clothing designed for people whose bodies have been deformed by their sedentary lifestyles.
Gazy wanted her Sedentary Laboratory project to highlight the impact of sitting for long periods of time in a way that would be visually impactful, without "pointing fingers" or blaming people for poor lifestyle habits.


“现代生活方式的特点是久坐不动。” Gazy告诉Dezeen记者,“虽然身体不动,但是我们可以通过技术产生精神上在活动。我想通过视觉化策略来强调这种无意识的行为。”



"Current lifestyles are sedentary," Gazy told Dezeen. "The body is immobile, but we are mentally hypermobile because of technology. I wanted to highlight this unconscious behaviour by making it visible."
According to Gazy, people in the Netherlands sit for an average of 8.7 hours a day, increasing to 10.4 hours for young people aged between 12 and 20 years old.
The main impacts are the higher risk of early death associated with higher risk of type-two diabetes and heart and cardiovascular diseases. Other related problems include depression, mobility issues and an increased likelihood of certain types of cancer.





The designer consulted a physiotherapist to discuss the type of injuries he encounters resulting from prolonged sitting, and exaggerated them to create a twisted, weakened figure of a man with a hunched back, craned neck, withered legs and damaged organs.
The clothes and furniture she presented during this year's Dutch Design Week were designed for this conceptual, future man.
A chair back tilts forward at an uncomfortable angle and is made up of dense wads of padding to accommodate his hunched back, and a tabletop is punctured with handholds so he can haul himself to his feet.






Oxygen canisters are attached to the table's legs to assist the man's suppressed lungs with breathing.
His suit jacket is tailored to fit a hunched back and forward-thrusting posture, while a pair of trousers is cut to be most comfortable in a seated position. For walking, Gazy designed a cane stick on wheels, because "pushing is more convenient".
"I designed it for both older and younger users because even children have more problems today to keep their balance when putting on shoes and socks," she said.
Gazy explained that the drab aesthetic of the calico suit and basic design of the furniture is supposed to enhance the dramatic effect and recall the design of medical tools and equipment.


“这些产品实际上更像是3D草图。” Gazy说,“我不是一个产品设计师,但我想激发想象力去描述一个不太美好的未来。”

"The products are actually more like 3D sketches," said Gazy. "I am not a product designer, but I wanted to trigger the imagination to give an insight into a not very pretty future."
"I wanted to 'design discomfort', to shock but with humour. Data just doesn't drive behaviour change and doctors can provide numbers about health risks, but I believe we need things – images – that we can relate to."
Gazy presented her Sedentary Laboratory project at this during this year's Dutch Design Week.
