“The whole idea of this product is in the fact that the chair is an object that serves the man and is fully dependent on him. So, this chair can’t work without a person. A person is thus required for the very chair to be complete.When someone is sitting on this chair, their legs have to be bent at the knees at 90-degree angle. In this position the body weight is distributed and pressure on the legs is minimal” said the designer.

“Our teams in Japan and the UK have been working hard with the Japan Sports Council to design a new National Stadium that would be ready to host the Rugby World Cup in 2019, the Tokyo 2020 Games and meet the need for a new home for Japanese sport for the next 50 to 100 years” it was confirmed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

High profile japanese architects such us Toyo Ito, Sou Fujimoto, Kengo Kuma and Fumihiko Maki criticized this project and launched a petititon for it to be scrapped due to its scale.

The design for the stadium was revised in July 2014 following budget changes and ongoing criticism.

“We have used our experience on major sports and cultural projects, including the hugely successful London 2012 Games and legacy, to design a stadium that can be built cost-effectively and still deliver the flexible and robust National Stadium that the Japan Sports Council requires,” said the firm’s statement.
