GREG LYNN NIKE
For the occasion of Milano Design Week 2016, 10 progressive contemporary designers join Nike to explore Natural Motion through various mediums. Some works are conceptual — foreshadowing future technologies — and others practical. In many cases, materials unique to Nike, such as Flyknit, have been applied.
Greg Lynn’s intelligent microclimate chair, constructed of a combination of rigid and flexible carbon fiber, uses integrated sensors to calculate the body temperature of the sitter then adjusts its integrated Peltier cooling modules and aluminum heat sinks accordingly. The surface is designed for maximum surface contact with the sitter, with a goal of selectively cooling and heating an athlete between periods of physical activity.
