Given the fact that we’re huge fans of everything related to design and technology, wind-up mechanisms do interest us too, which is why we simply can’t get enough of this fantastic WindUp Chair that charges up your smartphone as you rest your tired legs. Unveiled at the Milan Design Week, the chair, christened the Pega, sports a huge winding key on its backrest that requires a user to turn. Winding up this oversized clockwork mechanism creates enough energy to charge your phone.
As the key unwinds, juice trickles into your phone’s battery, making the chair an eco-friendly way to charge devices! The chair was designed by Taiwan-based design firm, Pega D&E, and is indeed a technological and design revolution incorporated in a piece of everyday furniture!
