You Can Dance

You Can Dance was designed and built for the Design Exchange, Canada’s Design Museum, Gala. Designers were asked to “hack” Ikea furniture and create a new object. Ikea makes very simple, geometric, static furniture. The notion behind this project was to make the object move. Other than Ikea, one of Sweden’s biggest exports was ABBA. So why not make the furniture disco dance? The form takes the silhouette from the movie poster for “Saturday Night Fever”.   One-off prototype.
