Ecobackrest™ Set of Three:
Our goal is to adapt furniture from floor sitting cultures into the modern setting. Floor Seats come in a variety of styles, from the traditional Japanese Zafu and Tatami Mat to the Tibetan Kneeling Bench and Native America Tipi Chair that we call the Eco Backrest™. These seats help create a comfortable floor living environment. You can sit in a variety of positions as shown in the photos.
Most Americans are unaware of the floor sitting furniture that floor based cultures have developed for many years, These simple seats provide far more comfort than the typical throw pillow can.
Our floor seats either put the sitter in a lounge position (Eco Backrest™) or in an active sitting position of vertical balance that establishes alignment and comfort.
Floor sitting is being rediscovered as a sleek and attractive design alternative especially for small spaces.
The Lean Green Dwelling
Living Big in a Small Space
by Patrick Clark
To most of us, a small dwelling normally brings up negative images such as: compromise, cramped, ghetto, low income, anti-social, and utilitarian. Isn’t this the land of the free, where bigger is better? Even so, in reality most of us live in a small abode out of necessity.
The current offerings on the market for space-saving furniture are usually simply the same icons (the couch, chair, table, and bed) in a smaller size or having fewer of them in an abode, studio or office. This is not a system upgrade or redesign, but merely ‘re-arranging the furniture’. This is just living smaller in a smaller space.
Modern has thrown away the baby with the bath water when it started excluded vernacular and classical elements in favor of the ‘newer is better’ mentality. What I am proposing is a method of designing small spaces using principles from a wide range of disciplines and cultures, to bring ‘Modern’ up to date. Actually Modern in this sense would be involve a different set of aesthetics which considers a wider range of factors and values, such as health, clutter control, green lifestyle, non-toxic materials, building science, Fung Shui, community building, appreciation for other cultures and an openness to new ideas as well as old ideas that still work.
The obstacles preventing this approach from becoming widespread boil down mostly to overlooked design flaws in the American home and office. These flaws are hangovers from a bygone era which had different available technologies, building materials, and culture. These American icons are ingrained in our psyches and modern design has not yet stood back and gotten a wide enough perspective to see that it is still thinking inside the box, not solving the problem.
A small home is far more capable of providing comfort, convenience, and elegance than most designers and architects realize. The fact that a building is designed around the furniture it holds must be looked at first before this hypothesis can be understood—that is, before one can start thinking outside the nine dots.
