If there is one thing a design student should be familiar with, it is that feeling that if they dim the lights after your all-nighter you will nod off and fall out of your seat in class.

Student  Matte Nyberg has a solution for your sleepy study breaks – a basic chair in most regards, complete with wooden legs and seat cushion, but which stretches upward along one side to give you something soft to lean against.


Matte Nyberg is currently a Masters of Industrial Design Candidate at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Previously she earned a Bachelors of Design in Architecture from the University of Minnesota.
