• Subtlety

    Memory is strongly linked to environment; recall of memories is significantly better if it is in the same environment where the learning took place.  This is also true for emotional states, when taking an exam the emotional discomfort and frustration is often greater than when studying. This chair aims to create discomfort and frustration while studying to better replicate the exam conditions.  It is larger than average to make the user feel smaller and less significant, the seat drops slightly when first sat on inducing a slight sense of fear, and the seat stays at a slight angle down causing the user to slip off slightly, encouraging a sense of frustration.
