  • Today, with all the gadgets and computers surrounding us, with all the tiny devices that fit in your pocket, but are very powerful and use advanced technology, we almost forgot how to make simple calculations, as it is easier to use your palm or iPhone for that. Even when you go shopping you leave it all for the shop assistant who also uses a machine telling them the change they have to give you. So the old abacus that our grandparents used for simple maths is now ancient history. However, I do like the design this device had with all the colourful wooden beads. Well, the Count on Me Chair is perfect and specially designed for people who are as nostalgic as I am after the old days. The designer of this merry chair is Eva Korae and she used wood, metal sheets and colourful wooden beads for it. It looks great and if it does not provide the comfort of a soft cushion, it will certainly keep you up and offer you a great massage. If you like this crazy chair you can visit the designer’s web page and order it for 7,000 euro.   http://www.homedit.com/count-on-me-chair/

  • The “Count on me” chair, created by the furniture designer Eva Korae, is not a product dedicated to children, but it can be easily classified as a toy- furniture. Inspired by the abacus, this colourful beaded chair can be an educational pastime for young and old. Eva is based in Cyprus and teaches at the newly established Cyprus University of Technology. http://www.innerdesign.com/blog/events/LONDON-DESIGN-FESTIVAL-2011-DESIGN-FOR-KIDS

  • You'd have to be pretty old to be nostalgic about an abacus, but we sure do appreciate the whimsy of this design. Not to mention the tactile pleasure it would bring a young child. The design is the work of Eva Korae who lives and works in Cyprus and it was shown as part of London Design Week. We don't expect it would be terribly comfortable to actually sit in, but it pleasantly and playfully evokes a simpler time. We're imagining a small abacus used as a seatback on a kid's chair which might have the same effect and still be functional (diy it and let us know!). You can see more of Korae's imaginative work at on her site, Seks. http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/the-count-on-me-chair-by-eva-k-157933
