== Concept ==
The word "Synergy" comes from the Greek words for “to work together”. This project combines the existing parabolic shape and comfortable sitting cushion of the Papasan chair with the natural-source energy utilization of the [[solar cooker]]. My hope was that, in the spirit of synergy, the whole would be greater than the sum of the parts and that people may find the idea of owning a solar cooker more practical if they can also sit and read a book in it when its not in use. Compared to the traditional mono-functional [[Parabolic Solar Cooker]], this project serves as a chair when not in use, which saves space and is less of a fire hazard than the traditional [[Parabolic Solar Cooker]]. It is built mostly from salvaged materials as to not contribute to consumption.
