Comforting time-out

Art & Leisure

When things get on top of us, we look for peace and serenity.

A designer from France has created a chair specially aimed at preventing people within the Autism spectrum from experiencing sensory-overload.

The cocoon-like chair is equipped with noise-absorbing, plain cushions which can be inflated at the touch of a button.

The resulting pressure on the torso and thigh mimics a comforting embrace. The intensity can be adjusted by tablet or remote control.

When sitting, users can concentrate on their own bodies, filter out distractions and self-soothe. The chair will soon be trialled in different settings.

A helpful innovation addressing the needs of those with ASD to go with the benefits of language learning and augmented reality.
