Motion Manufactory offers a completely new type of chair! The Original Feldenkrais Chair has many moveable parts and special features, f.e. adjustable backrest and seat heights. It was purpose-built for Feldenkrais, but it can also be used for therapy or massage. The chair is a home-produced, handmade product and therefore makes an important contribution to ecological sustainability and traditional craftsmanship.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?
It is my aim to open new ways for seated Feldenkrais lessons, therapy or massage. At the same time, I want to set an example against the modern throwaway society and the outsourcing of the production to low-wage-countries by offering home-produced products of high quality.
I want to address people who think that this creative and useful invention should be brought on the market. Together we will contribute to the promotion of home industry and to a better future for craftsmanship in the industrialized countries.
Why would you support this project?
This chair has gone through an intensive process of improvement over the time of two years. It has incorporated input from various rounds of prototyping with Feldenkrais trainers and practitioners until it arrived at this special design.
Supporting this project, you support local production, ecological sustainability and traditional craftsmanship. As a reward, you can choose between several "Thank you"-gifts - of course also wooden ones!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The development of the prototype is now completed. The next step will be the production of the first series of chairs until June 2015. All further income will be used for investments in the factory equipment.
Your support will be used as follows: 60 % production and factory equipment 20 % taxes (finance office, startnext) 20 % rewards
