Design studio PEGA has unveiled an quirky new chair at the recent Milan Design Week—crank up the over-sized clockwork key on its backrest and the WindUp Chair will charge our smartphone.

The playful-looking chair—featuring a wooden seat and metal legs—turns your physical effort into energy and charges your smart device while you sit in it.

The gigantic clockwork mechanism provides a charming vintage touch to this unconventional piece of furniture that ironically supports high-tech devices.
