This is a chair by Jaewook Kim, a chair where father and his kid can rest and play in one place. The back of this chair has climbing rope where the kid can climb it up and sit on the top of it on the shoulder of his father. More description by Jaewook Kim:
When I was young, Sunday morning, as soon as I woke up, I ran to my dad’s arms. I waited for my dad to get up, but waking up is a tough job for my exhausted old man. I incessantly woke him up to play with him. Without choices, he woke up and sat down on the sofa with rubbing his eyes. At that moment, I got on his neck. Soon he took off the ground, and I was flying over the world.
Abooba means “Piggyback” in Korean.
Dads want to sit down on the chair, to read a book or newspapers comfortably, and to relive his fatigue. Kids want to be hugged, and to go a playground with their dad. I thought about a piece of furniture that the dad can rest up on and the kid can have fun with. For me, the best fun with my dad was riding on his shoulders. Thus, I came up with a space where the dad can sit and take a rest while the kid can have fun riding on something nearby him.
