Advancements in technology is having a vast impact on the furniture design industry, resulting in innovative furniture pieces that follow some distinctive conception, materiality, and usability scenarios.

Created by London-based design studio Joyride, this is world’s first responsive furniture that is ideal for modern working environments.

According to the official website, these are multi-functional chairs, tables and stools that can seamlessly integrate with each other for easy and planned storage. Both the seating and surfaces are designed as a single unit. Mobility is an important consideration for these furniture pieces. With a hoverbase, a user can easily slide the chairs from one place to another.
The CUBA seating comes in three different styles – stool, Chool (a kind of stool with hidden backrest) and a chair (fixed backrest). The Chool adopts the best features from stool and chair. It features a hidden backrest that allows it to be docked under the table for a clean and organized look.
The backrest only comes up when a user sits on it and automatically retracts down when user leaves the seat. Multiple CUBA Chool units or stools can be organized in a straight line so that they can be used as a small bench.
