Bachelor Graduation Project.

The graduation project for my bachelor was to design a new stool for beauticians with key points design, functionality and ergonomics.


Result from a survey among the target group showed that almost 50% of the users suffered from physical complaints due bad seating. Keeping an eye on the right ergonomic measurements and norms can prevent a lot of these complains. The ISO 11226 norm is especially put together for a right seating. It describes seated postures in an array of different angles and positions.


The developed stool complies with the ISO-norm. The user is able to adjust the seat height and backrest position to his body. The large rounded seat provides support even when leaning forward. Also the tilting of the seat, when leaning forward, makes the pelvis tilt, which ensures that the user remains a straight spine.
